Recovery Act - Lignin Recovery and Purification

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Michael Lake, Dr.
Award Amount: $148,500.00

Recovery Act - Lignin Recovery and Purification

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Michael Lake, Dr.
Award Amount: $1,000,000.00
