Tethys Research

Tethys Research, LLC is a Bangor, ME 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 Tethys Research, LLC's business and areas of expertise. This project will develop processes to use the enzyme in pulp mills and forest biorefineries to produce raw materials for chemicals and biofuels. It also clones the enzyme for cost-effective large-scale production. Microorganisms that make novel enzymes to help separate wood components in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner have been developed. This project isolates one of these enzymes so that an enzyme-assisted pulping process can be designed to economically use forest biomass for chemicals and fuel.

Capturing Carbon Dioxide to Fuel the World The amazing technological and economic progress achieved in the past 100 years has largely been fueled by hydrocarbons. However the sustainability of this progress is now coming into question, both due to the rise in greenhouses gases caused by hydrocarbon combustion and the predicted depletion of fossil hydrocarbon sources. Sequesco's goal is to develop technologies which help enable hydrocarbons to continue fueling human progress, while alleviating the problems of greenhouse gas emissions, growing geological scarcity, and the drawbacks of agriculturally produced biofuels. The company's guiding principle is to use microbes as master chemists in sustainable systems that serve the dual role of sequestering carbon dioxide and producing transportation fuels.
