Company: Eltron Research & Development, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: EPA / SBIR / 2007 / 1
Abstract: Clean and renewable liquid fuels from biomass offer reduced new emission of CO2 and less dependence on expensive and unreliable foreign oil. Currently, bioethanol serves in the U.S.A. as bled for gasoline but eventually it could replace gasoline in passenger cars altogether. … more
Company: Microbial Fuel Cell Technologies, LLC Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / STTR / 2007 / 1
Abstract: … continue to increase at a dramatic pace for the foreseeable future, endangering the security, economy, and environment of the nation. One means of meeting this challenge is the replacement of liquid transportation fuels based on petroleum with cellulosic bioethanol. However,… more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2007 / 1
Abstract: Biobutanol, as a renewable alternative fuel, has a number of clear-cut advantages over bioethanol. However, biobutanol is not currently produced as a biofuel for economic reasons: biobutanol production by acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation and distillation is too… more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 2007 / 1
Abstract: "Demand for ethanol as a gasoline supplement is surging. Just over 100 U.S.corn-toethanol plants are currently operating, with almost 40 new plants slated for completion in the coming year. By 2012, 250 bioethanol plants are expected to be installed. The current… more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2007 / 2
Abstract: The separation and concentration of bioethanol from fermented biomass by distillation is a highly energy-intensive operation. In this project, ethanol-selective pervaporation membranes will be developed to perform this separation. The pervaporation process uses zeolite-polymer… more
Company: NexTech Materials, Ltd. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: USDA / SBIR / 2007 / 1
Abstract: This proposal directly supports development of alternative and renewable energy. Specifically, this project involves development and demonstration of a simplified method for operating solid oxide fuel cells directly on bio-ethanol. Renewable bio-fuels, such as ethanol, present… more
Company: Technova Corporation Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2007 / 1
Abstract: …tem for the bioconversion of wood chips and grass waste; and (3) characterize and optimize the entire bioprocess yield by analysis of the sugar composition of the resulting plant fiber syrup. Phase II will integrate the fermentation step and will maximize bioethanol yield. … more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2006 / 1
Abstract: …. Such streams are produced in cheese, wine, beer and sugar production. Distillation is too expensive to use at this scale. Nationwide, more than 200 plants might be installed. As the technology develops, it could have application to more mainstream bioethanol… more
Company: Porogen Corporation Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2006 / 2
Abstract: Bioethanol is an established domestic chemical/fuel product that is environmentally friendly and offers the possibility of strengthening the American farm economy, while simultaneously lowering dependence on foreign oil. However, the broad-based introduction of bioethanol is… more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2005 / 2
Abstract: 75027S The development of bio-based fuels can help reduce our nation's dependence on imported oil. This project will develop an integrated membrane pervaporation-dephlegmation-dehydration process to separate water from ethanol and produce 99.5% fuel-grade ethanol. In particular, high-flux,… more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2005 / 1
Abstract: …licable to gas and pervaporation separation operations. Initial applications are expected to include the separation of nitrogen from low-quality natural gas streams and the separatation of ethanol from fermentation broth by pervaporation in the production of bioethanol… more
Company: Porogen Corporation Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2005 / 1
Abstract: 78065S Bioethanol is an established domestic chemical/fuel product that is environmentally friendly and offers the possibility of strengthening American farm economy while simultaneously lowering dependence on the foreign oil. However, the benefits are limited because, during… more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2004 / 1
Abstract: 75027-The development of bio-based fuels can help reduce our Nation¿s dependence on imported oil. This project will develop an integrated membrane pervaporation-dephlegmation-dehydration process to separate ethanol from fermentation broth and produce 99+% fuel-grade ethanol. The process is… more
Company: Diversa Corporation Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 2002 / 1
Abstract: 70920 The production of bioethanol through higher catalytic rates of hydrolysis on crystalline cellulose could be improved if new cellobiohydrolases and endoglucanases enzymes could be found. This project will develop high-throughput screening methods to discover new gene… more
Company: Membrane Technology and Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: NSF / SBIR / 2002 / 1
Abstract: This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will focus on the development of a commercially viable continuous process for bioethanol recovery. The proposed process will integrate a novel permeate condensation approach with the energy-efficient pervaporation… more

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.
