Exelus Biomass-to-Gasoline Process, Topic 8.8
This SBIR project seeks to develop a new chemical process that will convert non-food biomass, such as agricultural or forest waste, into an environmentally friendly and sustainable replacement for gasoline. This effort will reduce the US's dependence on imported oil and decrease net carbon emissions. This project will develop new catalysts and chemical reactions that will efficienctly convert non-food sources of biomass like saw dust, wood chips, grasses, and crop residues, into a liquid motor fuel suitable for use in gasoline engines. If successful, this project will produce the scientific knowledge and technical data needed to construct and operate a commercial-scale plant capable of turning biomass into fuel.
