MTI Issues RFP for Emerging Technology Challenge for Maine’s Forest Resources

December 22, 2018 |

In Maine, the Maine Technology Institute (MTI) announced a request for responses to the Emerging Technology Challenge for Maine’s Forest Resources. The goal of the challenge is to deploy a forest industry technology in Maine, preferably co-located at an existing industrial facility, where forest biomass is used in the production of a value-added product for sale into a well-defined, promising market.

MTI will award up to $1.5 million in grants to challenge winners, for one or more projects. Responders to the challenge are expected to submit information to describe their strong business case, feedstock fit with Maine, the technical and technoeconomic merit of their technology, economic benefits to Maine, and geographic fit.

Submissions are due by January 25, 2019 and should be submitted to Biobased Maine via email at [email protected] MTI has contracted with Biobased Maine to help collect information on forest industry technologies and managing the challenge process.
