Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The ability now exists to take simple starches and convert them into biodegradable plastic products for future generations. Using continuous immobilized fungal fermentation simple starches are converted to a 95% pure stream of L(+)-lactic acid. Commercialization of this biodegradable plastic precursor is being enabled by t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Lactic acid fermentations have been extensively studied in the past decade. Almost all previous studies and current commercial processes use glucose or lactose and very little has been done with starch as the substrate for fermentation. There is a cost advantage in using starch, instead of glucose, for fermentation. The goal of this project is t...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

In a process known as ABE furmentation (acetone, butanol, ethanol), butanol is produced from biomass carbohydrates via fermentation using the bacteria strain Clostridium acetobutylicum. The process involves the uptake of butyric acid while maintaining the bacteria in a solventogenic phase. In this project, the process will be scaled up to prod...
