Agriculture and Food Research Initiative: Sustainable Bioenergy

This AFRI Challenge Area focuses on the priority to secure America's energy future.

It supports the development of regional systems for the sustainable production of bioenergy and biobased products that contribute significantly to reducing dependence on foreign oil, have net positive social,

environmental, and rural economic impacts, and are compatible with existing agricultural systems.

The long-term outcome for this program is to implement regional systems that materially deliver liquid transportation biofuels to help meet the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 goal of 36 billion gallons/year of biofuels by 2022 and reduce the National dependence on foreign oil.

In order to achieve this outcome, this program will support single-function Research, multi-function Integrated Research, Education, and/or Extension Projects, and Food and Agricultural Science Enhancement (FASE) Grants that address one of the Program Area Priorities (see Sustainable Bioenergy RFA for details).
