This won’t hurt a bit, tell us all about cellulosic sugars, lignin: DOE’s new RFI

July 26, 2016 |

DOElogoIn Washington, U.S. Department of Energy is seeking input from industry, academia, national laboratories and other biofuels and bioproducts stakeholders to identify existing capabilities to produce lignocellulosic sugars and lignin for use by the research community.

Many conversion technologies that produce biofuels or bioproducts utilize cellulosic sugars or lignin in their process. As a result, both lignocellulosic sugars and lignin have become necessary intermediates for advancing research towards economically producing biofuels and bioproducts. BETO seeks information to develop a comprehensive list of suppliers who are willing and able to produce and sell cellulosic sugar and/or lignin for use by the research community. This is solely a request for information (RFI) and not a funding opportunity announcement.

Please note:  It is DOE’s intent to make all information submitted in response to this RFI publicly available to other interested parties. Thus, respondents are specifically directed to not include proprietary, business sensitive or otherwise confidential information in their responses.

This RFI is not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA); therefore, EERE is not accepting applications at this time.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to [email protected] no later than 5:00pm (ET) on August 24, 2016. Responses must be provided as attachments to an email. It is recommended that attachments with file sizes exceeding 25MB be compressed (i.e., zipped) to ensure message delivery. Responses must be provided as a Microsoft Word (.docx) attachment to the email, and no more than 5 pages in length, 12 point font, 1 inch margins. Only electronic responses will be accepted.

Please identify your answers by responding to a specific question or topic if applicable. Respondents may answer as many or as few questions as they wish.
