Award List:

Genome-Enabled Advancement of Biomass to Biofuel Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: John Fabel, Mr
Award Amount: $99,858.00
Abstract:
The world needs to develop significant, viable alternatives to petroleum-based transportation fuels. In particular, ethanol fuel derived from plant sources, cellulosic ethanol, is positioned to become a significant component of the transportation fuel landscape. Ethanol is readily useable as a… More

A Novel Approach to Microbe-Base Ethanol Production, GTL:and Related Biotechnologies

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: Texas A&M
Principal Investigator: John Kilbane, Dr
Award Amount: $99,838.00
RI Contact: Heather Henry
Abstract:
The development of commercially-viable, cellulosic ethanol biofuels technology has emerged as a national priority. However, the crystalline structure of cellulose constitutes a major barrier to the efficient conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to fermentable polymers and sugars, with significant… More

Genome-Enabled Advancement of Biomass to Biofuel Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: John Fabel, Mr
Award Amount: $749,950.00
Abstract:
Development of cellulosic ethanol biofuels technology has emerged as a national priority. Clostridium phytofermentans is a novel, naturally occurring microbe that directly converts a broad-range of complex lignocellulosic materials, with ethanol as its primary fermentation by-product. Because it can… More

SBIR Phase I: Commercial Development of a Novel Microbial System for Producing Hydrogen Directly from Plant Feedstocks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John Kilbane II, DSc
Award Amount: $98,360.00
Abstract:
This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) research utilizes the anaerobic digestion by Clostridium phytofermentans (C-phy), which has an unusually broad substrate range and is capable of fermenting all major carbohydrate components of the plant cell wall directly to hydrogen without… More
