ChemCatBio is opening new doors to a circular carbon economy by accelerating the development of catalysts for converting biomass into renewable fuels and chemicals.
Drawing on national lab expertise, this U.S. Department of Energy-supported consortium partners with industry and bioenergy stakeholders to overcome catalysis barriers for fostering a sustainable energy future.
By leveraging unique lab capabilities and public-private partnerships, we seek to accelerate the catalyst-process development cycle, resulting in rapid transition of research and development (R&D) discoveries and growth of the bioeconomy in the United States.

Various mechanisms exist to leverage our unique capabilities and expertise through public-private partnerships. Contact us today to find out how.
ChemCatBio provides streamlined access to intellectual property. All participants of ChemCatBio have collectively negotiated CRADA and Intellectual Property (IP) Management Plan templates. These agreements allow industry to partner with the national labs and easily access IP that results from those engagements. Under the CRADA, IP ownership follows inventorship, with the industrial partner having a right to negotiate an exclusive license to IP developed with the ChemCatBio consortium.
