June 13, 2016 |

In Washington, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office  announced a request for information today, seeking feedback from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders to support a “billion-ton bioeconomy.” This RFI asks for input about specific aspects in the development of large-scale supply systems and technologies to eventually supply up to a billion dry tons of biomass feedstocks annually for a variety of end uses. The goal is to develop the components of processing and handling (unit operations) of biomass and demonstrate the viability of an Advanced Feedstock Supply Systems on-scale in the future.

The RFI categories include:

  1. Preprocessing technologies
  2. Quality management
  3. Strategies for mobilizing a billion tons of biomass resources

To see the full RFI, visit the EERE Exchange website. Responses must be received no later than 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on June 30, 2016.
