Here’s another notice from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy that will be of interest to ABO members. The notice is an intent to issue a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled “Integrated Biorefinery Optimization,” targeting research and development to “increase the performance efficiencies of biorefineries resulting in continuous operation and production of biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower at prices competitive with fossil-derived equivalents.”
The areas of interest that the FOA is targeting will likely include waste products, industrial separations within an integrated biorefinery, analytical modeling of solid materials and handling of solid materials.
The deadline for applications has not yet been issued (as of 12/13/2017).
