DOE requests info on bioproducts process verification

February 18, 2016
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

DOE logoThe U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking input from industry, academia, national laboratories, and other biofuels and bioproducts stakeholders to identify existing pilot- or process development-scale facilities with the capability to perform process verifications for biomass conversion pathways to biofuels, bioproducts, or intermediates that integrate multiple unit operations on a scale of approximately 0.5 or greater tons of dry biomass input per day.

The purpose of this request for information (RFI) is to develop a comprehensive list of locations that exist as (or are willing to act as) pilot- or process development-scale multi-user facilities for biofuels and bio-based products, chemicals, and intermediates, including synthesis gas, cellulosic sugars, bio-oil, hydrogen, biogas, and methane.

DOE is exclusively requesting information on capabilities that are on the scale of approximately 0.5 tons of dry biomass input per day or greater. This information will be used to assess existing capabilities that could be leveraged to perform process verifications and determine the gaps of such an inventory. This is solely a request for information and not a funding opportunity announcement. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is not accepting applications.

The RFI includes questions in six categories:

  1.  Technology Pathway
  2.  Unit Operations
  3.  Integration
  4.  Accessibility
  5.  Analytical Capabilities and Staff
  6.  Permits

To read the full RFI, visit the EERE Exchange website.
