Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Ningjun Cao
Award Amount: $65,000.00

N/A

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2000 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Cheng S. Gong
Award Amount: $70,000.00

Production of Glycerol from Corn by a Yeast Fermentation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Cheng S. Gong
Award Amount: $270,750.00
Abstract:
This Phase II proposal and the recently completed Phase I project deal with a new process of production of glycerol from cornstarch by a yeast fermentation. There are two current industrial processes for glycerol. Chemical syntheses are no longer competitive. The second method involves recovering… More

Production of Methyl Ethyl Ketone by a New Method from Corn Fiber

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: George T. Tsao, Vice President of R and D
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
This project deals with production of methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) from corn fiber. Corn fiber is consisted of mostly hemicellulose that can be hydrolyzed to produce a mixture of sugars. Extensive work has been done on fermentation by Klebsiela oxytoca that can metabolize all hemicellulose sugars and… More

Production of Fumaric Acid From Corn by Fermentation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: George T. Tsao, Vice President of R and D
Award Amount: $296,000.00
Abstract:
There are three specific objectives. Once attained, the technology will be ready for pilot plant tests, with commercializatin to follow. 1. The mold that produces fumaric acid from glucose has a tendency to form large pellets. When that happens, oxygen shortage will develop in the pellet center that… More

Production of Spores of Cellotrichum truncatum as Biological Control Agents by Solid Phase Fermentation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: George T. Tsao
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
A. Chemical Agents for weed control need to be replaced with biological control agents for better environmental effect. B. Bed temperature of solid phase fermentation needs to be controlled from over-heating that will kill the biological process. A. This project will help the produciton of spores… More
