Grant Funds Research into Nanomaterials Effect on Feedstock Yield

Submitted by on January 5, 2015 – 4:44 pmNo Comment

(University of Arkansas at Little Rock/Ethanol Producer Magazine)  The Arkansas Science and Technology Authority has approved grant funding for a UALR biology professor who says nanomaterials could increase the germination rate and biomass yield of bioenergy crops.

Mariya Khodakovskaya, associate professor in the UALR Department of Biology, says the establishment of an effective system for the production of bioenergy crops in the U.S. could have significant positive economic and energy implications.

The grant award amount is $37,020.

As the market price for commercially available nanomaterials has dropped dramatically, advanced nanotechnological approaches to germinate and grow bioenergy crops is a good alternative to genetic engineering or breeding, according to Khodakovskaya.  READ MORE
