Iowa State-ConocoPhillips collaboration advances 26 research projects in first year
Date:5/1/2008

AMES, Iowa and HOUSTON, Texas The first year of ConocoPhillips [NYSE:COP] eight-year, $22.5 million research program at Iowa State University (ISU) has supported 26 research projects and helped establish new research collaborations to further diversify Americas sources of energy and help meet growing energy demand.

ConocoPhillips, the third-largest integrated energy company in the United States, provided $1.75 million to begin 14 research projects at ISU in 2007. The company also provided $3 million to begin another 12 research projects in 2008. The research projects, being conducted by researchers in 11 departments or programs at Iowa State in conjunction with ConocoPhillips researchers, include studies of various biofuel production technologies, technical and economic analyses of different types of biorefineries, production of crops for conversion to biofuels, sustainable growing of crops and biomass, the harvest, storage and transportation of biomass, and the combustion performance of biofuels in engines.

ConocoPhillips is very pleased with the progress of our joint efforts and we commend the Universitys commitment to this research, said Stephen Brand, ConocoPhillips senior vice president, Technology. We have been impressed by the innovation and collaboration at work among ConocoPhillips and ISU researchers working side by side on the various projects.

ISU is proud to be working with ConocoPhillips on this important research, said Robert C. Brown, the Iowa Farm Bureau director of the Bioeconomy Institute at Iowa State. This truly is a research collaboration. Its not just a grant to the University.

The ConocoPhillips research program has attracted some Iowa State faculty members who are new to biorenewables research. One example is Mark Hargrove, an associate professor of biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology who is studying natural enzymes called cellulosomes, enzymes found in termites and the fir
