DOE Offering up to $78 Million for Bioenergy R&D

The US Department of Energy will provide up to $78 million in funding to support early-stage bioenergy research and development under the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office.
DOE Offering up to $78 Million for Bioenergy R&D

“The Department of Energy is focused on some of the most exciting research opportunities as well as the biggest technological challenges facing our diverse and abundant domestic bioenergy resources,” said Secretary Perry. “Through the funding opportunities announced today, U.S. bioenergy resources, including algae, energy crops, and various waste streams, will be more efficiently and effectively converted into affordable biofuels, biopower, and bioproducts.”

These Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) include:

BioEnergy Engineering for Products Synthesis (up to $28 million): This multi-topic FOA seeks to develop highly efficient conversion processes for improving the affordability of fuels and products from biomass and waste streams.  The FOA seeks early-stage research proposals that cover several topics pertaining to conversion processes.

Efficient Carbon Utilization in Algal Systems (up to $15 million): This research funding opportunity seeks proposals to improve the cost-competitiveness of algae-based biofuels and bioproducts.

Process Development for Advanced Biofuels and Biopower (up to $20 million): This funding opportunity supports early-stage research to develop integrated processes for the production of cost-competitive drop-in biofuels, including renewable jet fuel and renewable diesel fuel and processes to convert municipal solid waste and biosolids into biopower.

Affordable and Sustainable Energy Crops (up to $15 million): This funding opportunity supports early-stage research and development related to the production of affordable and sustainable non-food dedicated energy crops that can be used as feedstocks for the production of biofuels and bioproducts. Projects selected under this FOA will seek to conduct small-scale field testing of new varieties of energy crops and measure crop performance and environmental effects relative to traditional cropping and pasture systems.

Letters of Intent for these FOAs are due May 30, 2018, and full applications are due June 27, 2018.

Learn more about these Bioenergy funding opportunities, including a schedule of upcoming webinars.
