DOE to issue funding opportunity for advancements in algal biomass yield, Phase 2

The US Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) will issue, on behalf of the Bioenergy Technologies Office, a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) entitled “Advancements in Algal Biomass Yield, Phase 2 (ABY2).”

This FOA will support projects to develop technologies that are likely to succeed in producing 3,700 gallons of algal biofuel intermediate (or equivalent dry weight basis) per acre per year (gal/acre/yr) on an annualized average basis (not peak or projected) through multiple batch campaigns or on a semi-continuous or continuous basis, in an outdoor test environment by 2020.

Under this FOA, applicants must address one comprehensive topic area with three main priority areas:

  • Strain/productivity improvement
  • Improvements in pre-processing technologies (harvesting, dewatering, and extraction and/or equivalent processes)
  • Integration of cultivation with pre-processing technologies

DOE anticipates posting the FOA on or around 30 December.
