Immobilization of Biomolecules (Rubisco) by Self-Assembled Nanostructures
TS-037787 — Nanostructures that enhance the stability of biocatalysts that permit them to be utilized in scalable CO2 conversion processes
Carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) are the two most abundant greenhouse gasses, trapping thermal radiation close to the earth's atmosphere and contributing to climate change. These two gasses contributed up to 92% of all the greenhouse gas emissions in 2015 (epa.gov). From an industrial pe…

Methods and Processes for Producing Butyrate Esters from Sugars
TS-037568 — A method and process for producing butyrate esters for use as novel biofuels.These products have a similar energy content to biobutanol, but are easier to produce.
Currently, bioethanol is the major biofuel on the market, but recently butanol has gotten attention for its potential as a transportation fuel. It has many characteristics that make it a better fuel source than ethanol: butanol has 25% more Btu per gallon, it's less evaporative/explosive with …

Metabolic Engineering of Clostridium Tyrobutyricum for Butanol Production
TS-037555 — A new strain of bacteria that can produce butanol at a high titer for transportation fuel.
Butanol is generally used as an industrial solvent but can also be blended with gasoline and used as transportation fuel. Butanol is commonly produced using fossil fuels, but it can also be produced from biomass, referred to as biobutanol. Biobutanol is produced from fermentation of the same feeds…

CO2 Reduction to Acetate on Mixed Metal Oxide Catalyst
TS-037385 — A process for photoelectrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to acetate using mixed metal oxide as catalysts
The combustion of fossil fuels produces billions of tons of carbon dioxide annually. Research indicates that greater concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has altered Earth's climate, changed the pH of the ocean, and causing other potentially damaging evironmental effects. Countri…

Battery consumption minimization strategy for plug-in, pure, and hybrid EVs
TS-036908 — An energy management strategy for pure and hybrid electric vehicles that improves battery-life and optimizes fuel economy
Automotive powertrains are increasingly more electric, from mild and full hybrid, to plug-in hynbrid and battery electric, automotive propulsion is increasingly relying on electricity as a source of power assist, or as the sole source of power, in automotive vehicles. This is true for passenger, c…

Paired Lewis Acid Site Zeolite Catalysts for the Selective Conversion of Glucose to Fructose
TS-030928 — A zeolite catalyst with a unique chemical structure that utilizes paired Lewis acid sites to increase the catalytic selectivity for the isomerization of glucose and other sugars into fructose.
Fructose is a key compound in the food and fermentation industries that is typically produced via the enzymatic isomerization of glucose. The enzymes used to efficiently convert glucose to fructose are expensive to manufacture and sensitive to processing conditions. An alternative approach is to d…
