Development of Saccharifying Enzymes for Commercial Use

Funding: $33.8 million

Open Date: 08/17/2007

Close Date: 10/30/2007

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-PS36-07GO97034


This Funding Opportunity Announcement is requesting applications for the development of hydrolytic enzymes or enzyme system preparations that can effectively saccharify pretreated lignocellulosics to produce fermentable sugars under process relevant conditions. The enzymes or enzyme systems must be able to survive a wide range of environmental conditions and be stable to denaturing conditions typically found in lignocellulosic processing. DOE expects applicants to take the enzyme or enzyme systems to a commercial scale and have a sound business strategy to license and market them.
