US Department of Energy seeks input in support of developing a billion-ton bioeconomy

The U.S. Department of Energy has issued a request for information (RFI) regarding the ability to eventually supply up to a billion dry tons of biomass feedstock annually for a variety of end uses.

The DOE is seeking feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies and other stakeholders to support a “billion-ton bioeconomy.”  The RFI asks for stakeholder input on specific aspects in the development of large-scale supply systems and technologies to supply up to a billion tons of biomass feedstock each year. According to the DOE, the goal is to develop the components of processing and handling of biomass and demonstrate the viability of advanced feedstock supply systems (AFSS). 

Specific submission requirements are available on the DOE’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Exchange website under DE-FOA-0001630.
