Limited Submission Announcement

The Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Demonstration of Integrated Biorefinery Operations funding opportunity will fund biorefinery projects that have the necessary technical and economic performance data that validates their readiness for the next level of scale-up. In general, "integrated biorefineries" employ various combinations of feedstocks and conversion technologies to produce a variety of products, with the main focus on producing biofuels and bioproducts.

DOE encourages applications that propose novel or breakthrough technologies and those that include appropriate collaboration between and among industry, academia, and DOE National Laboratories, FFRDCs (Federally Funded Research and Development Centers) or other government-funded facilities. This FOA has six topic areas related to beneficial use of renewable biomass for the production of liquid transportation biofuel(s) and bioproduct(s) that is/are a replacement for fossil derived liquid transportation fuels and petroleum-based chemicals:

1. Operate an integrated pilot-scale biorefinery in order to validate the technology; utilize an Acceptable Feedstock to produce an Acceptable Biofuel

2. Operate an integrated pilot-scale biorefinery in order to validate the technology; utilize an Acceptable Feedstock to produce an Acceptable Bioproduct

3. Design, construct and operate an integrated demonstration-scale biorefinery to validate the technology; utilize an Acceptable Feedstock to produce an Acceptable Biofuel

4. Design, construct and operate an integrated demonstration-scale biorefinery to validate the technology; utilize an Acceptable Feedstock to produce an Acceptable Bioproduct

5. Operate an integrated pilot-scale biorefinery in order to validate the technology; utilize an Acceptable Feedstock to produce and Acceptable Biofuel

6. Design, construct and operate an integrated demonstration-scale biorefinery to validate the technology; utilize an Acceptable Feedstock to produce an Acceptable Biofuel
