Award List:

Low Cost Production of Yeast from Heat-stabilized Defatted Rice Bran

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Ronny Horax
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
This Phase I project focuses on the economic production of yeast in an automated bio-reactor using rice bran as an energy and nutrient source. Rice bran is an under-utilized, abundantly available, low-cost co-product of the rice milling process and is currently used almost exclusively as an… More

SBIR Phase I: Controlled Fermentation of Rice Bran for Production of Phenolic Compounds

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Ronny V. Horax, MS
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I research will demonstrate the feasibility of the development of a novel fermentation process for the release of phenolic compounds from rice bran. Rice bran is an underutilized co-product of rice processing and is a rich source of nutrients and… More

Low Cost Production of Yeast from Heat-stabilized Defatted Rice Bran

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Arvind Kannan, Post-Doctoral Research Associate
Award Amount: $350,000.00
Abstract:
Problem: This project will demonstrate the applicability of using rice bran and rice bran extract as a commercial scale growth medium for yeast. Currently, the production of yeast is carried out on a high sugar starting medium composed of beet or cane molasses, both of which are in short supply and… More
