Recovery Act - Demonstration of Integrated Biorefinery Operations

Open Date: 05/06/2009

Close Date: 06/30/2009

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000096

Summary:

The intent of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will be to select integrated biorefinery projects that have the necessary technical and economic performance data that validates their readiness for the next level of scale-up. In general, "integrated biorefineries" employ various combinations of feedstocks and conversion technologies to produce a variety of products, with the main focus on producing biofuels and bioproducts. Co- or by-products can include additional fuels, chemicals (or other materials), and heat and power.

This FOA has six topic areas:

  • Topic Area 1: Requests applicants to operate an integrated pilot-scale biorefinery in order to validate the technology. The proposed pilot-scale biorefinery must utilize an acceptable feedstock to produce an acceptable biofuel as defined for this Topic Area.
  • Topic Area 2 Requests applicants to operate an integrated pilot-scale biorefinery in order to validate the technology. The proposed pilot-scale biorefinery must utilize an acceptable feedstock to produce an acceptable bioproduct as defined for this Topic Area.
  • Topic Area 3: Requests that applicants design, construct and operate an integrated demonstration-scale biorefinery to validate the technology. The proposed demonstration-scale biorefinery must utilize an acceptable feedstock to produce an acceptable biofuel as defined below for this Topic Area.
  • Topic Area 4: Requests that applicants design, construct and operate an integrated demonstration-scale biorefinery to validate the technology. The proposed demonstration-scale biorefinery must utilize an acceptable feedstock to produce an acceptable bioproduct as defined below for this Topic Area.
  • Topic Area 5: Requests applicants to operate an integrated pilot-scale biorefinery in order to validate the technology. The proposed pilot-scale biorefinery must utilize an acceptable feedstock to produce and acceptable biofuel as defined below for this Topic Area.
  • Topic Area 6: Requests that applicants design, construct and operate an integrated demonstration-scale biorefinery to validate the technology. The proposed demonstration-scale biorefinery must utilize an acceptable feedstock to produce an acceptable biofuel as defined below for this Topic Area.

Due to the passage of the Recovery Act, this FOA replaces and expands upon the DE-PS36-09GO99038 FOA. Changes have been made to the available Topic Areas, funding profile, and schedule.
