Trillium FiberFuels

Trillium FiberFuels, Inc. is a Corvallis, OR based company that has received a grant(s) from the Department of Energy's SBIR/STTR program. The abstract(s) for these grant award(s) are provided as well since they provide insights into Trillium FiberFuels, Inc.'s business and areas of expertise. This project will use an industrial enzyme to convert a "difficult" sugar (xylose) into a fermentable sugar. Use of the enzyme will enable higher utilization of sugars from biomass and make cellulosic ethanol an economically viable source of energy.
