This project was accepted into TIP with two overarching project goals: evaluate the catalyst for performance in the context of typical industrial concerns of lifetime, durability, poisoning, and scale-up; then use that information to estimate the economic viability of the process as a source of fuel ethanol. Additionally, Dr. Rondinone’s team is conducting studies to understand efficiency limits and potential improvements.
Applications of this technology are primarily in the areas of fuel production and emergency energy production. Additionally, this method has the potential to be an economically viable alternative to the use of seed crops as precursors to ethanol production.
