Integrated Process Improvements for Biochemical Conversion of Biomass Sugars: From Pretreatment to Substitutes for Petroleum-based Feedstocks, Products and Fuels
Open Date: 12/13/2010
Close Date: 02/07/2011
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000337
This Funding Opportunity Announcement seeks applications to develop and demonstrate integrated bench scale technology and/or process improvements, from pretreatment to substitutes for petroleum-based feedstocks, products, and fuels that better the economics and efficiency of biochemical conversion process. Typical improvements could be in enzyme production and efficiency (cellulases, hemicellulases, etc.); fuel synthesis cost and efficiency (fermentation organisms, catalysts, etc.); and specific improvements to the feedstock pretreatment or conditioning steps when operated in an integrated fashion. <.p>
