In Texas, ExxonMobil and Fraunhofer USA are accepting applications for its newest TechBridge Challenge, the Designed2Scale Challenge, until November 15th for new technologies in algae and microalgae for biofuels. Fraunhofer TechBridgewill award up to $50,000 in prototyping, demonstration, and/or validation services from Fraunhofer R&D network to selected teams.
Solutions of interest include:
- Technologies and strategies to aid in algal separation, cell disruption and pretreatment of microalgal cells, prior to lipid extraction
- Technologies, strategies and processes to efficiently extract intracellular lipids from microalgae
- New capabilities in microalgal downstream processing that minimize energy usage, chemical intensity and/or complexity
Proposals are due by November 15, 2019 at: www.designed2scalechallenge.com. Applicants and awardees’ intellectual property will be fully protected throughout the review process.
