The Energy Department’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) recently announced new topics and subtopics under its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, including one subtopic specific to algae: “Solid-liquid separations for algal systems.”
The “Solid-liquid separations for algal systems” subtopic falls under the Bioenergy Topic for which Phase 1 awards are $150,000 or less and Phase 2 are $1 million or less.
ABO encourages its members that qualify as small business (independently owned with fewer than 500 employees) to look into this opportunity.
In order to be considered for this SBIR, interested companies must file a mandatory letter of intent by Monday, December 15 before 5:00 PM EST, followed by a formal application process.
EERE will host a webinar for potential applicants, which will be especially helpful for first time applicants, on December 8 from 11:00 – 1:30 EST. Webinar registration can be found here.
