September, 4 / 2018

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (DOE/BETO) selected eight algae projects for nearly $17 million in funding among 36 Bioenergy R&D awards issued today. The awards are the latest installment of funding under BETO’s Advanced Algal Systems program, which was established in 2016 in response to ABO’s successful effort to secure strong, sustained funding for algae research in the annual federal budget process. Congratulations to ABO organizational members AzCATI, Global Algae Innovations, LanzaTech and MicroBio Engineering, as well as our ABO individual member awardees. Thank you DOE/BETO for your continued investment.
