Document Title: Value-Added Products from Bioprocessing
Category: Agricultural Research
Media Type: Graphics
Date of Image/Photo: March 1999
Background: Our engineered biological systems and chemical catalysts create chemical reactions in naturally occurring materials. The resulting processes transform wastes such as corn fibers, wheat byproducts, food processing wastes, and paper mill sludge into valuable chemicals. These chemicals, including levulinic acid, succinic acid, lactic acid, and sorbitol, are used to create fuels, solvents, paints, inks, plastics, textiles, antifreeze, cosmetics, alternative fuels, and other products. Livestock waste can be converted into an alternative energy source. Our industrial partners build and operate the facilities for these conversion processes. One of these processes won the "Green Chemistry" award.
