Notice of Intent to Issue FOA: Targeted Algal Biofuels and Bioproducts (TABB)

Open Date: 08/18/2014

Close Date: 09/22/2014

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0001177


The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0001162, entitled "Targeted Algal Biofuels and Bioproducts (TABB)." The TABB FOA seeks to reduce the cost of algal biofuels. BETO's 2019 projected state of technology (SOT) for the cost of algal biofuels is modeled at about $7 per gallon gasoline gallon equipvalent (gge) without valuable co-products. The TABB FOA will support work at bench and process development scales to develop valuable co-products, crop protection, and CO2 utilization strategies.

BETO expects the TABB FOA to result in modeled algal biofuel costs of less than $5 gge by 2019. This will provide alternative, nearer-term pathways to achieve BETO's goal of $3 gge advanced algal biofuels validation by 2030. This Notice is issued so that interested parties are aware of the EERE's intention to issue this FOA in the near term. All of the information contained in this Notice is subject to change.
