CARBON INITIATIVE SYMPOSIUM

This past year, OSU’s Carbon Initiative Team was selected among the top four teams to develop a full application for a Tier 1 Research Initiative (formerly known as HIBAR) that OSU’s Office of the Vice President for Research launched. Tier 1s are aimed to grow the research enterprise at OSU using the critical mass of Read More

Just Released! The Bioeconomy Initiative: Implementation Framework

The U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today released a multi-agency strategy to accelerate innovative technologies that harness the nation’s biomass resources for affordable biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower. The Bioeconomy Initiative: Implementation Framework was developed by the Biomass Research and Development Board (BR&D Board) to guide interagency coordination for such Read More

GLADIS Expansion for Modeling Next Generation Bioproduct and Bioenergy Market Logistics

There is a critical need for a widely accessible, cradle-to-grave, software package that can integrate and utilize information from multiple distributed databases, and make use of existing agricultural models. Dr. Rodney Holcomb, Professor of Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University (OSU), collaborated with Dr. Michael Buser, Program Leader for Natural Resources and Sustainable Agricultural Sciences Read More

Patent Released for Method Improving Producer Gas Fermentation

During gasification, biomass is converted into producer gas or syngas, which consists of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen (H2), and carbon dioxide (CO2). Syngas can be fermented to liquid fuels and chemicals using microorganisms such as acetogenic bacteria (acetogens). Gasification-fermentation technology used in converting biomass to alcohols is still an emerging technology. Two of the critical Read More
