Abstract:

The U.S. has abundant biomass resources and with the right technology, has the potential to convert these renewable resources into valuable industrial products and bio-fuels. However, current high temperature thermochemical processes to convert renewable feedstocks to fuels or chemicals such as pyrolysis and gasification or low temperature enzymatic processes are simply not cost-competitive with conventional fossil-fuel based processes. This SBIR project seeks to produce large volume monomers such as ethylene and propylene from bio-mass, thereby reducing the use of non-renewable raw materials in plastics manufacturing. This project applies novel reaction and reactor concepts with environmentally benign homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts in a multi-step process that deconstructs and stabilizes biomass before conversion to light olefins
