Butanol Production with High Yield and Carbon Conversion Using Novel Biocatalysts

Butanol is a valuable chemical that can be used for the production of solvents, plasticizers, butylamines and amino resins. Butanol is also a drop-in fuel, which can easily be blended with gasoline or upgraded to advanced biofuels such as jet fuel. Butanol has been produced by the traditional acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation using molasses, starches and Read More

Alternative Water Sources for Bioenergy Crops Production on Marginal Lands

Large scale biomass production that will permit a significant substitution for fossil fuels will require substantial irrigation water and land. While the southwest U.S. region such as west Texas and southern New Mexico has adequate marginal lands, finding reliable water sources to produce bioenergy crops is the main challenge. This challenge can be met by Read More

Software as a Service Platform Created using GLADIS for Modeling Next Generation Bioproduct and Bioenergy Market Logistics

Thorough analysis of a feedstock supply chain requires a holistic system analysis that includes facility location optimization, supply chain cost analytics, and robust uncertainty analysis. End users like the producers, biorefineries, and investors need the ability to conduct these analysis using readily available software that allows the users to enter and modify their own parameter Read More
