Catalytic Fractionation of Biomass in Ionic Liquids

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,999.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
Lignocellulose has a remarkable resistance against chemicals and microbial attacks due to its complex structure. For the production of biofuels and chemicals the aim is to cleanly fractionate biomass and to utilize the lignin, cellulose, and hemicellulose individually. The current pretreatment… More
