DOE Announces $10 Million for Technologies to Produce Advanced Biofuel Products from Biomass

Dear Algae Biomass Organization members,

The Energy Department today announced up to $10 million in funding to advance the production of advanced biofuels, substitutes for petroleum-based feedstocks, and bioproducts made from renewable, non-food-based biomass, such as agricultural residues, woody biomass or algae. This supports the Department’s efforts to make drop-in biofuels more accessible and affordable, as well as meet the cost target equivalent of $3.00 per gallon of gasoline by 2022.

ABO members developing these technologies should consider applying. For more information and application requirements, visit the Funding Opportunity Exchange website.

If you have questions about about this opportunity, please contact the ABO’s legislative counsel, Laurie Purpuro, at
