DOE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) develops technologies that convert domestic biomass and waste resources into biofuels, bioproducts, and power to enable affordable energy, economic growth, and innovation in renewable energy and chemicals production.
This FOA supports high-impact
technology RD&D to accelerate the bioeconomy and, in particular, the production of low-carbon biofuels for the aviation, marine, rail, and long-haul trucking industries.
BETO is focusing on applied RD&D to improve the performance and reduce cost of biofuel production technologies and scale-up production systems in partnership with industry.
By reducing cost and technical risk, BETO can help pave the way for industry to deploy commercial-scale integrated biorefineries and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from hard-to-decarbonize sectors, such as the aviation industry.
Under this funding opportunity, BETO is interested in the following Topic Areas:
Topic Area 1:
Pre-Pilot Scale-Up of Integrated Biorefineries Topic Area 2:
Pilot Scale-Up of Integrated Biorefineries Topic Area 3:
Demonstration Scale-Up of Integrated Biorefineries Topic Area 4:
Gen-1 Corn Ethanol Emission Reduction Interested parties are directed to visit the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s eXCHANGE system at https://eere-Exchange.energy.gov for the full Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-FOA-000263 8.
