Products Platform

November 15, 2005

Platform Overview

Utilization of platform outputs and transferring technology to the integrated biorefinery

Platform outputs and outcomes

Outputs: Fuels – mainly ethanol

Chemicals and materials

Heat and Power

Outcomes: technology and tools that have broad applicability for multiple fuels, chemicals and materials, and technology that leads to implementation or use in larger, biorefinery development efforts.

Who’s doing the work?

  • Labs – PNL, NREL, ANL
  • Industry – Metabolix Inc, NatureWorks LLC, Cargill, Dow, Rohm and Haas
  • Other federal efforts include USDA-ARS

platform approach
Platform Approach
  • Approach
    • Identification of Barriers,
      • Fuels, Chemical and Materials, Heat and Power
    • Conducting Systematic R&D Activities to Overcome these Barriers,
      • Appropriate research is selected through competitive funding opportunity announcements (FOA) that target applied and pre-competitive research that addresses the technology barriers and those technology areas suggested by industry to be the highest priority. The applicants are required to show a direct correlation to barriers in their proposed research plans.
    • and Prioritizing Activities Based on the Biorefinery Pathways.
      • Analysis drives the prioritization of research areas to be pursued, with a view toward near, mid and long term implementation.
  • Relationship to Program and EERE goals and targets
    • An integrated biorefinery is the ultimate deployment strategy for the Program to meet its goals of reducing dependence of petroleum and spurring the growth of the bioindustry.
platform goals
Platform Goals
  • Fuels: reducing the cost of ethanol production in both existing facilities as well as future lignocellulosic facilities.
  • Chemicals and Materials: competitive with petroleum counterparts both economically and in performance characteristics.

More specific goals and economic targets will be discussed

key joule accomplishments
Key Joule Accomplishments
  • These are the most important accomplishments related to project milestones and objectives
  • These accomplishments are benchmarked against the technical targets
key accomplishments
Key Accomplishments
  • The OBP program currently employs strategic analyses to help focus the efforts as well as responses from solicitations in crafting the products portfolio. Two such strategic analyses directed towards products from biomass have been published.
    • Top Value Added Chemicals from Biomass Volume I—Results of Screening for Potential Candidates from Sugars and Synthesis Gas (T. Werpy and G. Petersen, 2004) contains recommendations for the top 12 and top 24 candidates for building block organic chemicals derived from sugars and the associated research needs.
    • Top Value Added Chemicals from Biomass Volume II. Results of Screening for Potential Candidates from Biorefinery Lignin (Bozell, Holladay, Johnson, and White, 2005) is currently planned to be vetted with industry.
  • Examples of significant achievements to date:
    • Successfully demonstrated technical and economic feasibility of a soy-based marine lubricant which went to commercialization.
    • Metabolix’s Natural Plastics win presidential green chemistry challenge award.
    • A patent was filed resulting from yeast development work for new strains with multisugar fermenting capabilities
    • Two patents filed for separative bioreactor wafers and applications.
    • Chemicals from Biologically-Derived Succinic Acid (R&D 100).
  • Public outreach:
    • First International Biorefinery Workshop, July 2005
    • Interim Stage Gate Review, August 2005
    • Biodiesel Earmark “Information Meeting”, June 2005
  • Benefits: Return On Investment

20 projects were reviewed by a panel of experts from government, industry, and academia. 18 were funded by DOE/OBP and two are funded by USDA. All of the projects focused on technology development regarding products in the following three technical areas: Analysis, Chemicals and Materials, and Fuels.

The objective of this review meeting was to provide DOE/OBP with:

  • An evaluation of the technical progress and impacts on addressing program goals, barriers, and milestones
  • Effectiveness of the technical work to date in achieving project goals and objectives
  • Plans toward completing the goals and objectives
  • Explanation of the envisioned commercialization pathway including any preliminary business plan

interim review outcomes
Interim Review Outcomes
  • Draft report indicates strengths and weaknesses of the portfolio.
  • Program staff are working with project staff to develop action plans that will reduce weaknesses.
  • Key Outcomes:
      • Analysis is an important tool for guiding the prioritization of the Platform.
      • Education of the importance of markets, competing technology considerations and decision making tools used by the program.
      • Lacked a good review of the platform approach
future direction
Future Direction
  • Products is shifting focus from single product development projects to products development within the Integrated Biorefinery
  • Mortgages will be continued to completion.
  • Increased focus on core enabling technologies
    • Examples:
      • Fungal genomics
      • Fermentation fundamentals
      • Separations
