Energy Department Awards $18 Million to Develop Valuable Bioproducts and Biofuels from Algae

ABO applauds the Department of Energy for awarding six algae technology projects with awards totaling up to $18 million to advance the agency’s goal to reduce the price of algae-based biofuels to $5 per gallon gasoline equivalent by 2019.

Congratulations to the selected projects: Producing Algae and Co-Products for Energy (PACE), Colorado School of Mines, Golden, CO; Marine Algae Industrialization Consortium (MAGIC), Duke University, Durham, NC; Global Algae Innovations, Inc., El Cajon, CA; Arizona State University, Mesa, AZ; University of California, San Diego, San Diego, CA; Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA.
