USDA, DOE Announce Interagency Biomass Research And Development Initiative Funding

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), announced that up to $9 million in funding will be made available through the Biomass Research and Development Initiative (BRDI) to increase the nation’s energy independence by supporting the development of bioenergy feedstocks, […]

DOE Announces Funding For Biofuels, Bioproducts, Biopower Projects

Just before 2016 came to a close, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the selection of six projects for up to $12.9 million in federal funding. The funding opportunity announcement (FOA) and initiative is titled “Project Definition for Pilot- and Demonstration-Scale Manufacturing of Biofuels, Bioproducts, and Biopower,” and it represents new investment in a […]

Unlocking Lignin For Sustainable Biofuel

Turning trees, grass, and other biomass into fuel for automobiles and airplanes is a costly and complex process. Biofuel researchers are working to change that, envisioning a future where cellulosic ethanol, an alcohol derived from plant sugars, is as common and affordable at the gas station as gasoline. The key to making this vision a […]

Oregon Senator Introduces Grant Program To Improve Biomass Innovation

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has been working to increase the use of biomass in his state and the country, and has introduced another bill with the goal of improving technologies for woody biomass. The bill, the Bioenergy Act of 2015, would create a cost-share grant program at the Department of Energy (DOE) to improve technology […]

$3 Million DOE Grant Supports SUNY Bioenergy Developments

The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded up to $3 million to the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) to develop and demonstrate ways to reduce the cost of delivering woody bioenergy feedstocks to biorefineries. Specifically, the grant will be used to lower the delivered cost of short-rotation woody crops; rapidly, accurately, and […]

DOE Awards $7 Million To Two Bioenergy Feedstock Logistics Projects

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced up to $7 million for two projects aimed at developing and demonstrating ways to reduce the cost of delivering bioenergy feedstocks to biorefineries. Examples of bioenergy feedstocks include corn stover, switchgrass, and woody biomass. By investing in this type of research, development, and demonstration, the Energy Department is […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Woody Biomass Plant Already Closed

When Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Biomass Steam Plant opened in 2012, it was supposed to save the lab money while also cutting pollution. But the plant had to be shut down after just a year and a half when a systems check found that some parts were already failing. The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Johnson […]

Biofuels Industry Hopeful At 2014 DOE Biomass Conference

At the Department of Energy’s two-day conference Biomass 2014: Growing the Future Bioeconomy, technologies, feedstocks, and innovation in the bioenergy sector were on display. Attendees celebrated four U.S. advanced cellulosic biofuel refineries that are close to commercial production, several public-private partnerships that have spurred research and development of biofuels, and young scientists who are the […]

Purdue University Awarded $12 Million DOE Grant For Biomass Fuels Research

A research center at Purdue University’s Discovery Park has been awarded a $12 million, four-year grant as part of a $100 million U.S. Department of Energy initiative to accelerate scientific breakthroughs needed to build the 21st century energy economy. The Purdue-led Center for Direct Catalytic Conversion of Biomass to Biofuels (C3Bio) will use the additional […]

Savannah River Site Marks One Year Anniversary Of Biomass Cogeneration Facility

Officials from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Ameresco, Inc., a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, came together to mark the first year of successful operation of its new renewable energy fueled cogeneration facility at the Savannah River Site (SRS). Under the Department’s single largest renewable Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC), the […]
