Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Metabolic Engineering for Clostridial Biotechnology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Bryan P. Tracy, PhD
Award Amount: $99,492.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop platform clostridia strains suitable for industrial scale alcohol production from renewable feedstocks and also to improve metabolic engineering technologies for all clostridia. Clostridia are strictly anaerobic, endospore… More

Enhancing site-specific chromosomal integration in clostridia

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Bryan Tracy, Mr.
Award Amount: $99,682.00
Abstract:
The bacteria genus, Clostridium, includes many species that are naturally capable of degrading cellulose and producing valuable chemicals and fuel alcohols. Unfortunately the genetic engineering tools for developing improved strains are limited for all clostridia. This project will develop novel… More

SBIR Phase I: Cultivation of Duckweed for Bioremediation of Delaware and Chesapeake Watersheds, and for the Sustainable Production of a Renewable Chemical Feedstock

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Lisa A. Waidner
Award Amount: $149,707.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a duckweed system for poultry waste bioremediation and use of the duckweed as a renewable feedstock for Clostridium acetobutylicum (Cac) biofuel production. Runoff from agricultural, municipal and other sources leads to… More
