Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 13 B-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Abundant cellulosic biomass is an ideal starting material for biofuels, but unlocking the latent energy potential of cellulose is technically difficult because cellulose is one of nature

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses a key challenge for cost-effective manufacturing of sustainable, cellulosic biofuels - the rapid development of more efficient enzymes for biomass conversion and scalable microbial expression systems for those enzymes. Cellulose is the most abundant organic polymer on earth, the c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Replacing fossil fuels with cellulosic biofuels can greatly reduce carbon emissions and reduce our dependence of foreign energy sources. However, while cellulosic feedstocks are inexpensive, the production costs of cellulosic fuels are not low enough to be cost competitive with gasoline. One problem is that the enzymes currently used to decons...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Cellulosic biofuels promise a sustainable, renewable path to replacing the ~200 billion gallons of fuel consumed in the United States in 2008, but the key hurdle is how to economically convert cellulosic biomass into liquid fuels. Cellulose, the most abundant natural polymer on earth, is made of sugar molecules connected by difficult-to-break bo...
