The DOE will provide funding to address the highest priority R&D areas within biofuel technologies, bioproducts, and biopower. It includes areas of interest (AOIs) from all five Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) programs: Feedstock Supply and Logistics; Advanced Algal Systems; Conversion; Advanced Development and Optimization; and Sustainability and Strategic Analysis. Each AOI supports BETO’s objectives to reduce the minimum selling price of drop-in biofuels, lower the cost of biopower, enable high-value products from biomass or waste resources, and improve the quality of feedstock characterization and reliability of biorefinery operations.
