Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the ripening of crops, conserves moisture and fertilizer,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

Succinic acid is referred to as a "platform chemical" because it can be reacted with other molecules to create several industrial chemicals. The current 10 million lb/year market for synthetic succinic acid is limited due to cost of manufacture. If successful, this project will result in a low-cost succinic acid bioprocess, thereby increasing ma...

Natural flavor compounds find wide applications in the food, feed, cosmetic, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and isoamyl acetate is an important flavor ester. In this research program, a low-cost process is proposed to convert glucose from renewable sources to isoamyl acetate using a high-yielding metabolically engineered E coli. Isoamyl a...

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

Develop a fermentation process capable of economically converting agricultural by-products (biomass wastes containing sugars and starches) to a biodegradable, non-corrosive road deicer. The process developed in this work will support energy conservation and sound environmental management policies by enhancing the utilization of byproducts from a...
