SBIR Phase I: Versatile Biobased Plastics from Omega-hydroxylated fatty acids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Jiali Cai – (718) 260-3408
Award Amount: $149,976.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will create a family of bioplastics containing omega-hydroxyfatty acid (omega-HOFAs) repeat units to fill a gap in commercially available bioplastics. First, the effects of omega-HOFA chain length on corresponding polymer (P[omega-HOFA])… More

SBIR Phase I: Innovative Modified Microbial Surfactants: Biobased Solutions for Industrial and Environmental Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Thavasi Renga Thavasi
Award Amount: $149,995.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase-I project will address the development of modified sophorolipid (MSL) surfactant molecules by simple and scalable modification of natural SLs adopting "green chemistry principles". Natural SLs will be produced through fermentation with yeast… More
