Industrial biotechnology and bioenergy highlight notice 1: generation of hydrocarbons from living organisms

Funding total

£569K

No. of projects funded

1: Mark Peter Ashe, The University of Manchester (Ref: BB/K002767/1)
Synthetic approaches towards the production of biofuels from lignocellulosic feedstocks in yeast

Purpose

To encourage proposals that work towards developing novel or improved biological processes for the production and/or isolation of hydrocarbon-like products from biological feedstocks or living organisms.

Key aims

  • To develop novel or improved biological processes for the production and/or isolation of products from biological feedstocks or living organisms that have the potential to be used for the production of advanced biofuels, lubricants, platform chemicals, high value chemicals or their biological intermediates
  • To take into consideration the energy efficiency, sustainability, environmental impacts and cost effectiveness of the biological process
