Novel Cost-effective Production of High Quality Papers

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$70,000.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
Mechanical pulping accounts for about 25% of the wood pulp production in the world today. This volume is expected to increase in the future. Mechanical pulping, with its high yield, is viewed as a way to extend these resources. However, mechanical pulping is electrical energy-intensive (a mill… More

Novel Cost-Effective Production of High Quality Papers

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$0.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
The overall goal of the proposed program is to demonstrate the technical and scientific feasibility of combining the biopulping and fiber loading technologies at a pilot-scale simulating industrial conditions to minimize the initial research and development costs. The combined technology will save… More

A novel process for converting wood chips into improved composite boards, chemicals and fuels

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$80,000.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
"We have developed a new pretreatment (patent pending) with red pine for medium density fiberboard (MDF) production, which compared to controls was more resistant to water infiltration in 24 hour swelling and water adsorption tests. Structural integrity after water exposure is an important property… More

A novel process for converting wood chips into improved composite boards, chemcials, and fuels.

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$349,914.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
The Medium Density Fiberboard or MDF industry in North America is facing many challenges, largely as a result of the weak housing market. Residential construction is 20 percent below 2006 levels and it is not likely that an improvement will happen before mid 2008. Rising imports of secondary wood… More

A Novel Sulfite Pretreatment Process (SPORL) for Efficient Biochemical Conversion Woody Biomass to Bioethanol

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$80,000.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
Woody biomass is a very important feedstock for the future bioeconomy for the rural US for its availability in large quantities, ease in storage, and low cost for transportation. However, woody biomass, especially softwood, is the most difficult to convert biochemically to fermentable sugars due to… More

A Novel Sulfite Pretreatment Process (SPORL) for Efficient Biochemical Conversion of Woody Biomass to Bioethanol

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$400,000.00
Agency:
USDA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
The SPORL process consists of reacting wood chips with a solution of calcium, magnesium, or sulfite at elevated temperatures for a short time, and then size reducing the resulting material using a disk refiner to generate fibrous substrate for subsequent saccharification and fermentation. The work… More
