Award List:

Non-Corrosive Propionate Based Road Deicer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Greggory S. Karr, Project Manager
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
Develop a fermentation process capable of economically converting agricultural by-products (biomass wastes containing sugars and starches) to a biodegradable, non-corrosive road deicer. The process developed in this work will support energy conservation and sound environmental management policies by… More

Innovative and Low Cost Process to Produce Isoamyl Acetate using Metabolically Engineered E.Coli

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Praveen V. Vadlani
Award Amount: $79,995.00
Abstract:
Natural flavor compounds find wide applications in the food, feed, cosmetic, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and isoamyl acetate is an important flavor ester. In this research program, a low-cost process is proposed to convert glucose from renewable sources to isoamyl acetate using a… More

Low-Cost Succinate Production Using Grain Sorghum and Engineered E. coli

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Praveen V. Vadlani, Principal Scientist-Fermentation
Award Amount: $79,999.00
Abstract:
Succinic acid is referred to as a "platform chemical" because it can be reacted with other molecules to create several industrial chemicals. The current 10 million lb/year market for synthetic succinic acid is limited due to cost of manufacture. If successful, this project will result in a low-cost… More

Poly (Lactic Acid)/Starch Blend for a Degradable Agricultural Mulch Film

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Greggory S. Karr
Award Amount: $79,700.00
Abstract:
Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the… More
