$79 Million in Funding Available for Bioenergy Research and Development

9 May 2019 – Last week, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the availability of more than $79 million for the research and development of biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower. Of particular note for the CAAFI community, the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) included a topic on Optimization of Biomass-Derived Jet Fuel Blends and several other topics relevant to advanced/drop-in fuels and feedstocks. The other topics areas are: Cultivation Intensification Processes for Algae; Biomass Component Variability and Feedstock Conversion Interface; Efficient Wood Heaters; Systems Research of Hydrocarbon Biofuel Technologies; Renewable Energy from Urban and Suburban Wastes; Advanced Bioprocessing and Agile BioFoundry; Plastics in the Circular Carbon Economy; Rethinking Anaerobic Digestion; and Reducing Water, Energy, and Emissions in Bioenergy. The FOA is meant to advance DOE’s objective to reduce the costs of biofuels and biopower, while enabling the creation of high-value products from biomass and/or waste resources.
