Biobased Chemicals


Relevant projects could involve novel chemical/biochemical/biotechnological process technologies for the conversion of renewable raw material sources to cost-competitive products that represent new products or, sustainable alternatives to existing commercial industrial commodity, intermediate, specialty and fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals products derived from non-renewable sources. Technology proposed should also be built on sustainable, energy efficient, and waste minimization or waste elimination paradigms with scalable process technologies for the production of biobased chemicals and products. Projects could involve proof of concept or technical feasibility work on all aspects of proving out a production process. Technologies that facilitate the separation and purification of products made through biochemical pathways should submit to the Separations Technology (CT2) topic. Process intensification approaches should consider the CT12 topic.
