Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) Announces Renewable Carbon Fiber Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA)

February 4, 2014

BETO's mission within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is to develop and transform biomass resources into commercially viable, high-performance biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower through targeted research development, demonstration, and deployment supported through public and private partnerships. This FOA addresses that mission by demonstrating a new technology pathway to produce high performance and low-cost renewable carbon fibers for vehicle lightweighting from renewable non-food biomass.
