Award List:

Hemicellulose: Lignin Etherase from Microbe B603:Feasibility of Isolation to Fractionate Wood for Chemicals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Nancy G. Kravit, Dr
Award Amount: $99,582.00
Abstract:
Forest biomass has the potential to provide environmentally-sustainable, carbon-neutral raw material for much of the nation¿s energy and chemical synthesis needs. However, the drawback to the use of wood for chemical production and biofuels continues to be the complexity of producing separate… More

Hemicellulose: Lignin Etherase from Microbe B603:Feasibility of Isolation to Fractionate Wood for Chemicals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Nancy G. Kravit, Dr
Award Amount: $749,728.00
Abstract:
American forests have the potential to provide environmentally sustainable, carbon-neutral raw material for much of the nation¿s energy and chemical synthesis needs. However, wood has not been used to produce chemicals and biofuels because current technology cannot efficiently separate… More
