Co-Optima funding opportunity to accelerate biofuels, up to $2M

February 23, 2020 |

In California, the Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines (Co-Optima) initiative focuses on developing new high-performance fuels that, when combined with advanced combustion approaches, can boost engine efficiency and cut emissions. To accelerate adoption of new fuels and blendstocks from renewable resources which enable higher efficiency and lower emissions in on-highway vehicles, Co-Optima seeks proposals to leverage national laboratory resources to overcome key technical challenges.

Proposals should address specific technical challenges and barriers that Co-Optima researchers can address to move performance-advantaged biofuels closer to market in conjunction with advanced, high-efficiency engines.

Selected projects are anticipated to range from $200,000 up to $300,000 of Co-Optima National Laboratory assistance over the project duration of 12–18 months. Up to $2,000,000 will be available for this call and Co-Optima anticipates a total of 7–10 projects will be selected.
