  6. Efficient Process for the Production of a Drop-in Diesel Fuel Oxygenate from Bio-succinic Acid

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    This SBIR project will develop a new process to produce diesel fuel oxygenates from bio-succinic acid and bio-butanol, which are produced in existing biorefineries.Biorefineries produce large quantities of C5 sugars, which are now commercially fermented to bio-succinic acid (C4O4H10) and bio-butanol (C4OH10). What is needed is an efficient means to convert these biomolecules into useful products s ...
