U.S. DOE announced up to $35 million in funding for bioenergy feedstock technologies and algae research and development, supporting the department’s goals of improving the performance and lowering the cost and risk of technologies that can be used to produce biofuels, biopower, and bioproducts. Topic Areas under this FOA include:
- Characterization of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) to Enable Production of Conversion-Ready Feedstocks: Projects will work on understanding MSW variability and informing the steps necessary to produce conversion-ready feedstock.
- Algae Productivity Exceeding Expectations (APEX): Projects will 1) improve seasonal productivity of algae via a diverse portfolio of strains, and 2) develop tools to accelerate current and future strain and cultivation improvements.
Concept papers under this FOA are due February 1. Full applications are due April 5. Click here to view the full FOA.
