Demonstration of Integrated Biorefinery Operations
Open Date: 12/22/2008
Close Date: 05/07/2009
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-PS36-09GO99038
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will fund integrated biorefinery projects that have the necessary technical and economic performance data that validates readiness for the next level of scale up. For the purpose of this FOA, the term "integrated biorefinery" is a facility that uses a feedstock meeting the requirements described in this FOA to produce a biofuel as the "primary product" and may produce other products including chemicals (or other materials) and heat and power. These integrated biorefineries would produce, as their primary product, a liquid transportation fuel to support meeting the advanced biofuels portion of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS) and as further discussed below.
This FOA contains two topic areas:
- Topic Area 1: Requests applicants to operate an integrated pilot-scale biorefinery in order to validate the technology.
- Topic Area 2: Requests that applicants design, construct, and operate an integrated demonstration-scale biorefinery to validate the technology.
Funding amounts and schedules are subject to change.
