DOE Requests Information About Algal Feedstocks For Future Program Planning
On September 3, 2015, the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) released a Request for Information (RFI) titled “High Yields through Productivity and Integration Research.” BETO is seeking input from industry, academia, and other stakeholders regarding supply systems and services for the cultivation, logistics, and preprocessing of algal feedstocks.
This RFI provides algae stakeholders with an opportunity to contribute their views on the requirements necessary to develop reliable and sustainable supplies of algal biomass, algal intermediates, and metabolites. Multiple types of algae, including microalgae, cyanobacteria, and macroalgae are of interest.
The request is only for information that may be used by DOE to support program planning and is not a funding opportunity announcement. To respond to the request for information, e-mail attachments to GOHYPIRRFI@hq.doe.gov by 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on September 30, 2015.
