University of Arkansas spin-off awarded small business grant for catalytic membrane reactor technology

December 15, 2021 |

In Arkansas, SIEV Technologies, a catalytic membrane reactor design company started by University of Arkansas researchers, has been awarded a $256,000 Small Business Innovation Research Grant from the National Science Foundation to develop technology that improves biofuel production.

The grant will enable SIEV to continue developing its business model as well as its catalytic membrane technology. This technology takes lignocellulosic biomass or other carbohydrate-rich feedstock, such as corn fiber or agricultural waste, and converts it into marketable products, like biofuels and bio-based products. SIEV will initially focus on ethanol production.
