DE-FOA-0003389 Request for Information (RFI) on Renewable Propane Production Technologies and Uses

The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is requesting information and feedback on areas relating to activities in the Conversion Research & Development (R&D) Program.

This RFI is focused on understanding

the supply chains for production and uses of renewable propane and other renewable gaseous intermediates.

Specifically, DOE would like to understand the potential for R&D to increase the viability of renewable propane to pursue new production pathways to sustainable aviation fuel and other high-impact products from municipal waste; agricultural residue; forest resources; and fats, oils, and greases.

The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from industrial entities that currently produce, or are considering producing, renewable propane and other renewable gaseous intermediates.

EERE is specifically interested in information on the costs and benefits to a refinery that hydroprocesses biogenic fats, oils, and greases of utilizing renewable propane produced in situ as process energy compared to separation and recovery of the renewable propane for sale externally in the propane market.

This is solely a request for information and not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).

EERE is not accepting applications.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to RenewablePropaneRFI@ee.doe.govno later than 5:00p.m.
