Last August the National Science Foundation awarded UK a $1.9M grant through its Office of Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) Program. The project's goal is to investigate the high capacity processes required for the production of hydrocarbon fuels and chemicals from lignocellulosic biomass. There is now a web site developed to disseminate information on the project. In addition to the latest discoveries, you can find information on the participants, their publications, and news relating to lignin.
The Project Investigator is Rodney Andrews (Director CAER). The Co-Project Investigators are: Mark Crocker (CAER), Seth DeBolt (UK's Dept. of Horticulture), and Mark Meier (UK's Dept. of Chemistry and CAER).
