Congress Reaffirms Support for Algae

Funding for algae research and development gets the full support of Congress in the Fiscal Year 2017 spending deal announced by House and Senate leaders Sunday.

Algal systems research under DOE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office would receive another $30 million infusion with an additional $10 million for algae and other innovative Carbon Use and Reuse technologies under DOE’s Fossil Energy Office — a clear sign of Congress’ continued support for our sector’s important work.

If approved by Congress this week, the bill will fund these and other government functions through September.
