On April 15, 2016, DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) announced a Notice of Intent (NOI) to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled "Project Definition for Pilot and Demonstration Scale Manufacturing of Biofuels, Bioproducts, and Biopower (PD2B3)." The FOA would be managed by the Bioenergy Technologies Office, and will support technology development plans for drop-in hydrocarbon biofuels, bioproducts, or biopower manufacturing. Applicants should address a topic within the following priority areas:

  • Pilot-scale production of biofuels from high impact cellulosic, algal, or biogas feedstocks;
     
  • Demonstration-scale production of biofuels from high impact cellulosic, algal, or biogas feedstocks; and
     
  • Production of biopower, bioproducts, and biofuels from biosolids and other waste streams.

The full FOA is expected to be posted on the EERE Exchange on May 2, 2016, with the full NOI currently available.
