Abstract: This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of producing biofibers from wheat straw using a novel biomass fractionation technology. This fractionation process separates lignin and hemicellulose from biomass, leaving a… more
Company: Purevision Technology, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: NSF / SBIR / 2003 / 1
Abstract: …esearch project is to develop a novel two-stage hydrolysis and fermentation process for conversion of purified cellulose to ethanol. The process would be part of a larger biomass refining system in which lignocellulosic biomass would first be fractionated into a hemicellulose /… more
Company: General Resource Technology, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 2002 / 1
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… more
Company: Harvest Fuel, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 2000 / 2
Abstract: A low value by-product of flour milling--midds--shows great potential as a bioprocessing feedstock to produce high protein feed. Phase I research demonstrated ability to upgrade 18% protein midds to 47% protein concentrate, in part, by hydrolyzing hemicellulose to pentose for… more
Company: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2000 / 1
Abstract: Not Available The inedible portion of plant biomass (i.e., hemicellulose, cellulose, and lignin) in closed regenerative life support systems must be reprocessed. Umpqua Research Company¿s original NASA SBIR Phase I experimental efforts have demonstrated pumpable high
Company: Harvest Fuel, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 1998 / 1
Abstract: A low value by-product of flour milling--midds--shows great potential as a bioprocessing feedstock to produce high protein feed. Phase I research demonstrated ability to upgrade 18% protein midds to 47% protein concentrate, in part, by hydrolyzing hemicellulose to pentose for… more
Company: Lynntech, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 1998 / 2
Abstract: Many crop residues, feed byproducts, forages and other biomass have little or no nutritional value asanimal feed. Lignin in these materials is the most significant factor that limits the availability ofstructural carbohydrate (i.e., cellulose and hemicellulose) to microbial… more
Company: Lynntech, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 1997 / 1

Search Options

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc. Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.

Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.


Search for Either Criteria

When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections. For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.


Narrowing the Search Results

You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories. For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
