    • Alternative paths to alcohols and hydrocarbons from biomass 

      Granda, Cesar B.; Holtzapple, Mark T.; Granda, Cesar B.; Taco-vasquez, Sebastian; Ross, Michael Kyle; Luce, Gary; Spencer, John A.; Spencer, Rae L. (United States. Patent and Trademark OfficeTexas A&M University. Libraries, 2012-07-31)
      A method of producing alcohols, hydrocarbons, or both from biomass by converting biomass into a carboxylic acid, reacting the carboxylic acid with an olefin to produce an ester and hydrogenolyzing the ester to produce ...
    • Deoxygenation of biomass derived oxygenates to hydrocarbons via direct methane intervention 

      Fernando, Sandun; Gunawardena, Duminda Anuradh (United States. Patent and Trademark OfficeTexas A&M University. Libraries, 2017-02-28)
      The application describes a process where methane or any short chained hydrocarbon could be catalytically coupled with an oxygenate (preferably derived from thermal processing of biomass) to dehydrate and produce a ...
    • Integrated biofuel production system 

      Hall, Kenneth R.; Holtzapple, Mark T.; Capareda, Sergio C. (United States. Patent and Trademark OfficeTexas A&M University. Libraries, 2012-04-10)
      According to an embodiment, a biomass conversion subsystem produces methane and/or alcohol and residual biomass. A pyrolysis or a gasification subsystem is used to produce thermal energy and/or process gasses. The thermal ...
