Company: Lynntech, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 1991 / 2
Abstract: … MATERIALS, DERIVED MAINLY FROM AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTRY BYPRODUCTS, REPRESENT A LARGE SOURCE OF VALUABLE ORGANIC CHEMICAL FEEDSTOCKS. FOR UTILIZATION OF BIOMASS TO BE ECONOMICALLY ATTRACTIVE, ALL THE MAJOR POLYMERIC COMPONENTS OF IT (CELLULOSE, HEMICELLULOSE AND LIGNIN) MUST… more
Company: Tienzyme, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 1991 / 1
Abstract: THERE IS WIDE-SPREAD INTEREST IN USING PHANEROCHAETE CHRYSOSPORIUM, A LIGNIN-DEGRADING FUNGUS AND ITS ENZYMES (LIGNINASES) FOR BIOPULPING, DEGRADATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL (INCLUDING LIGNIN-DERIVED) WASTE, AND CONVERTING LIGNIN TO USEFUL CHEMICAL FEEDSTOCK. TWO MAJOR DRAWBACKS IN… more
Company: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 1990 / 1
Abstract: CARBON MATERIALS ARE A MUCH HIGHER ADDED VALUE PRODUCT THAN NEARLY ANY OTHER PRODUCTS FROM WHICH COULD BE PRODUCED FROM LIGNIN. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE IN THE CASE OF CARBON FIBERS, WHICH CAN SELL FOR TENS TO HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS PER POUND. CONSEQUENTLY, THE DEVELOPMENT OF… more
Company: Xylan Inc Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 1990 / 1
Abstract: … BE CONVERTED INTO A FIBER THAT CAN BE ACETYLATED TOBE USED FOR THE PRODUCTION OF COMPOSITES. THESE COMPOSITES CAN BE USED IN MANY STRUCTURAL AND NONSTRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS. BY UTILIZING THE XYLAN-I U.S. PATENT # 4,842,877, THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL BIOMASS CHANGES ITS … more
Company: Cape Cod Research Agency/Program/Year/Phase: NSF / SBIR / 1989 / 1
Abstract: THE GOAL OF THIS MULTIDISCIPLINARY PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP AN ECONOMICAL AND EFFICIENT ULTRAVIOLET ABSORBING DELIVERY SYSTEM, BASED ON LIGNINS, FOR THE NUCLEOPOLYHEDROSIS VIRUS (NPV) WHICH IS SPECIFIC TO THE GYPSY MOTH, LYMANTRIA DISPAR. THE GYPSY MOTH CATERPILLAR HAS BECOME AN… more
Company: J.k. Research Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 1988 / 1
Abstract: COAL LIQUEFACTION TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO THE STAGEWHERE SUCCESSFUL PILOT PLANTS ARE NOW IN OPERATION IN THE UNITED STATES. HOWEVER, ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS HAVE CURTAILED PLANS FOR COMMERCIAL VENTURES. BY SOLUBILIZING OXIDIZED COAL WITH THE HELP OF … more
Company: Mycotech Corporation Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 1986 / 1
Abstract: ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF LIGNOCELLULOSE ARE WASTED BUT THE ECONOMY OF PREPARING IT FOR INDUSTRIAL USE HAS HITHERTO PREVENTED DEVELOPMENT. CHEMICAL AND MECHANICAL LIGNINOLYTICMETHODS TEND TO BE ENERGY INTENSIVE AND/OR ARE ECOLOGICALLY UNDESIRABLE. MANY LIGNIN DEGRADING WHITE ROT… more
Company: Power Alcohol Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 1986 / 1
Abstract: LIGNINS OF CONSISTENT QUALITY APPEAR TO BE OBTAINED AS UNREACTED PRODUCTS OF A CATALYTIC PROCESS FOR HYDROLYSIS OF LIGNOCELLULOSICS TO FERMENTABLE SUGARS. THE CATALYTIC AGENT, AN INORGANIC SALT, HYDROLYZES BOTH HEMICELLULOSE AND ALPHACELLULOSE SO RAPIDLY AND AT SUCH RELATIVELY… more

HELP FOR NARROW YOUR SEARCH

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.
