US DofE announces $18.6m funding for biomass projects

The US Department of Energy (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) awarded $18.6 million (€17.3 million) in funding to eight university and industry projects to develop biomass feedstocks to produce affordable biofuels and bioproducts that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Located in eight states, the DoE said the projects would create good-paying jobs, support rural economies and encourage participation of underserved communities, all while putting the United States on a path to a clean and equitable energy economy.

“These critical investments represent DOE’s commitment to tackling the most challenging clean energy problems,” said Alejandro Moreno, associate principal deputy assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy.
