Microvi Biotechnolgoies awarded USDA grant for biobutanol microorganisms

August 5, 2013 |

In California, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) awarded Microvi Biotechnologies a grant to develop a technology that overcomes the toxic and inhibitory effects on butanol producing microorganisms, dramatically improving the yield and performance of biobutanol processes. Based on preliminary investigation Microvi’s technology has shown that it substantially increase the titer concentration of butanol over its solubility limit leading to effective biobutanol production. The technology will be retrofitable in existing bioethanol processes and work with any microorganism including genetically modified organisms.
