Fractional Catalytic Pyrolysis and Protein Adhesives Production from Biomass
Fractional catalytic pyrolysis (FCP) is a novel process for the conversion of biomass components into desirable products without a need for secondary separation techniques. FCP is applicable to whole biomass feedstocks, biomass-to-ethanol residues and organosolv pulping residues. Potential products include adhesives, biohydrogen, cresols and phenols....

Multimedia Fluidized Bed Pyrolysis Production of Biogasoil
A multimedia fluidized bed pyrolysis process have been developed that takes any biomass feedstock (grass, softwood, hardwood) and converts it directly into biogasoil in one step. The biogasoil can be processed directly to hydrocarbons or blended with petroleum gas oil to be processed into gasoline, diesel, and light hydrocarbon fuels. Our invention...

Improvement of Biomass and Grain Yield in Crop Plants
A rice transcription factor gene (HYR) increases plant biomass and photosynthetic rates leading to an increase in grain yield. In addition, transformed rice plants display improved water use efficiency and exhibit significantly higher biomass accumulation as well as grain yield over wild type control plants under drought conditions.Transforming and...
