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…

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…

Biobutal Production from Synthetic Hydrogen Bacteria
TS-015230 — Unique bacterial strains for conversion of carbon dioxide and hydrogen into biobutanol.
Biobutanol is traditionally produced by anaerobic conversion (fermentation) of carbohydrates by strains of Clostridium spp. However, the yield from this process is low, and it is cost-prohibitive from commercial standpoint. Additionally, Clostridium strains have low tolerance to butanol. There is …

Nitrogen Oxide Reduction
TS-015058 — A catalytic treatment of nitrogen oxides from lean burning engine exhaust.
The choice of reducing agent for the reduction of nitrogen oxides in lean combustion exhaust streams is critical to limit pollution. Hydrocarbons are ideal reducing agents because they are present in the exhaust stream of many applications, but reduction of nitrogen oxides is difficult to catalyze…
