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.
ChemCatBio is excited to announce a Phase II Directed Funding Opportunity (DFO)! This Phase II DFO is open to all industry partners involved in awarded Phase I projects, and the proposed Phase II projects must build upon the progress in Phase I to further advance the technology. Get more details and instructions for the DFO. Submissions are due November 22, 2019.

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.
