DOE Announces $18.6 million to support Low-Carbon Biofuels and Bioproducts.

(Washington, D.C.) – The United States Department of Energy announced $18.6 million in funding for eight university and industry projects to develop biomass feedstocks to produce affordable biofuels and bioproducts that reduce green house gas emissions.

Projects will be chosen based on how they address improving the production of environmentally sustainable and low-carbon feedstocks for bioenergy through climate-smart agricultural practices, and developing algae crop protection methods and strategies for algae cultivation systems.

The selected projects will create jobs, support rural economies, and encourage participation in underserved communities.
