The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) has published a notice of intent to issue a second Scale-Up Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). This FOA, funded by the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), will aim to accelerate the scale-up of biofuel and bioproduct biorefineries. This includes efforts for pre-pilot, pilot, and demonstration scale projects and will allow for both projects that are in the planning phase as well as those that already have a design package and are ready to construct. This also encompasses previously funded awards that were selected under previous FOAs for design work.
Earlier this year, BETO solicited applications for the first Scale-Up FOA which was targeted towards applicants who still needed to assemble design packages. Eleven projects were selected for awards in the Scale-Up topic areas of this FOA, totaling over $33 million.
