University Research in Biomass Technologies: Basic and Applied Understanding of Biomass Conversion and Processing for Fuels, Chemicals/Materials, and Heat and Power

Funding: $5 million

Open Date: 09/01/2004

Close Date: 11/17/2004

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-PS36-04GO94025


The Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy announces a notice of availability of funding for restricted eligibility grants from the Office of the Biomass Program. Eligibility is restricted to consortia of institutions of higher education with at least one private sector partner.

The intent is that any science and technology developed under this announcement will assist in developing the eventual production of nonpetroleum-based fuels, chemicals/materials, and heat and power, particularly for enabling emerging and future biorefineries. This solicitation targets two general areas of collaborative research and development. The first is vertical R&D strategy in which a target area of interest to the Biomass Program is explored in depth. The second is a horizontal R&D strategy that addresses the fundamental challenges along the entire biomass chain from the biomass feedstock input toconversion processes to final use.

For more information, see the full solicitation.
