ARPA-E to issue new funding opportunity for bio-conversion of methane to liquid fuels; encouraging formation of project teams now
In mid-March, 2013, the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) intends to issue a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) (DE-FOA-0000881) for the Bio-Conversion of Methane-to-Liquids.
The objective of the FOA will be to identify transformational concepts for cost-effective, one-step conversion of methane to liquid transportation fuels with low capital expenditure and flexible deployment to access remote, flared, or pipeline gas.
ARPA-E is encouraging scientists and engineers from different organizations, scientific disciplines, and technology sectors to form new project teams for the upcoming FOA.
ARPA-E intends to publish a list of potential teaming partners for the Bio-Conversion of Methane-to-Liquids FOA on ARPA-E eXCHANGE, ARPA-E’s online application portal, in mid-March, 2013.
