Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Phage control of filamentous bacteria - A novel focused antimicrobial approach to counter microbial problems in municipal wastewater systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Neil Summer, MBA
Award Amount: $200,000.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project will develop a phage technology to remediate and control the foam-causing microorganisms at wastewater treatment plants. The research will include isolation of problematic foaming Nocardia species, isolation of phage capable of killing foaming Nocardia, and evaluation of… More

SBIR Phase I: Improvement of the biofuel fermentation process by the phage-mediated reduction of contaminating lactic acid bacteria

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth J. Summer
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will be used to optimize biofuel production. The fermentation of biofuel ethanol is frequently disrupted by the growth of competing lactic acid bacteria (LAB). LAB compete for the feedstock, produce undesirable acids and inhibit… More

SBIR Phase II: Improvement of the Biofuel Fermentation Process by the Phage-mediated Reduction of Contaminating Lactic Acid Bacteria

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth J. Summer
Award Amount: $485,747.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is focused on improving biofuel fermentation processes by developing phage products designed to inhibit bacteria that reduce biofuel fermentation efficiencies. This product will improve biomass conversion efficiencies in the biorefinery. One… More
