VariFAS won a NSF SBIR Phase II award recently. We will further de-risk our technology and scale up the capability to produce enough quantities of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) that can be evaluated by potential partners. The objectives of SBIR Phase II include:

  1. optimization and scale-up of the fermentation process to produce large quantity of materials
  2. synthesizing lubricants from our material and testing their properties
  3. further strain development to improve the technical metrics
