ChemCatBio is a U.S. Department of Energy national lab-led research and development consortium dedicated to identifying and overcoming catalysis challenges for the conversion of biomass and waste resources into fuels, chemicals, and materials.
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.
Learn more about our existing R&D projects and partnerships.
Join us for our next webinar on July 31! Learn more about ChemCatBio's collaborative efforts to develop a flexible catalytic process for the single-step conversion of ethanol to either n-butene-rich olefins, as fuel precursors, or to 1,3-butadiene as a chemical coproduct. Get more information and register today.
ChemCatBio recently released its catalyst cost estimating tool to the public, incorporating industry standard estimation methods into a user-friendly spreadsheet and web tool. Try CatCost today!

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.
