Biofuel Development Company Infinite Enzymes Wins Research Grant
by Michael Sheffield (Memphis Business Journal) Infinite Enzymes LLC has received a $450,000 Small Business Innovation Research Phase II grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to advance its enzyme development technology.
This is the second Small Business Innovation Research grant the Jonesboro, Ark.-based company has won. Infinite Enzymes won a USDA SBIR Phase I grant in 2010.
