DOE issues RFI on cellulosic sugars and lignin production capabilities


The US Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a request for information (DE-FOA-0001615) from industry, academia, national laboratories and other biofuels and bioproducts stakeholders to identify existing capabilities to produce lignocellulosic sugars and lignin for use by the research community.

Many conversion technologies that produce drop-in biofuels or biomass-based bioproducts utilize cellulosic sugars or lignin in their process. As a result, both lignocellulosic sugars and lignin have become necessary intermediates for advancing research.

Over the past several years, a number of companies have entered this field and are producing lignocellulosic sugars and/or lignin. However, DOE said, is not clear how many of these companies are willing and able to sell these products to the research community, and what quantities are available.

Responses must be submitted by 9 September.
