Location(s): Wisconsin
Offices(s): Golden Field Office

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to provide federal funding to Virent, Inc. to research and develop an improved multistage process for the hydrothermal liquefaction of biomass to feed into Virent's catalytic technology producing water soluble, partially deoxygenated intermediates that are ideally suited for catalytic processing to distillate hydrocarbons.
