HNEI researchers investigated multi-component extraction of bio-oils, protein, fermentatable sugars, and high value metabolites from oil-bearing biomass using ionic liquid based solvents. The patented process was verified to support multi-component extraction of bio-oils, high value chemicals, and fermentable sugars that supported heterotrophic high-density growth of oil-bearing yeast.
