Bio-Based Fuels, MSU-Northern: $800k

Researchers aim to synthesize MT-grown industrial oilseeds into high-value chemicals and fuels by 1) producing camelina-derived aromatics as a blend component to aviation gasoline; 2) developing a catalyst that has the potential to significantly lower the operating cost of avgas production from camelina; and 3) designing a process for fuel pellet production from camelina meal, agricultural byproducts, and lawn clippings.
