U.S. Government Awards DuPont, Partners with Technology Investment Agreement for Macroalgae-to-Biobutanol Research
Date:3/2/2010

validated the potential of isobutanol to be a viable opportunity to advance biofuels through fleet testing and examination of the fuel value chain.

Butamax™ will commercialize isobutanol, a fuel that:

 
  • has a higher energy content per gallon than many first generation biofuels;
  • does not absorb water and can be transported through the existing oil and gasoline distribution infrastructure;
  • can be used in gasoline-powered vehicles without modification at higher volumes than first generation biofuels, enabling greater concentrations of renewables into the transport fuel mix.
Butamax™ Advanced Biofuels is the culmination of the partnership between DuPont and BP and will be the leader in isobutanol technology development and marketing. The synergy between Butamax™ as a fast moving and flexible commercialization enterprise and the considerable experience of DuPont and BP in the areas of advanced biotechnology development, transportation fuel design and marketing will achieve rapid market acceptance of the technology developed under this award.

Bio Architecture Lab is a pioneer in the application of synthetic biology and enzyme design to the development of biofuels and renewable chemicals from aquafarmed, native macroalgae (seaweed), which is a low cost, scalable and sustainable biomass.

DuPont is a science-based products and services company. Founded in 1802, Du
