U.S. DOE funding opportunity for algae-based carbon capture tech

January 3, 2021 |

In Washington, D.C., the Algae Biomass Organization reports that this month the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy is expected to announce a new funding opportunity for projects focusing on the development of algae-based technology that utilizes carbon dioxide from power systems or other industrial sources as a feedstock.

The DOE’s announcement notes that “Research should focus on the development and engineering-scale testing of algae-based, biomediated uptake pathways to transform carbon dioxide into advanced products.”

Projects working with macroalgae, eukaryotic microalgae, and cyanobacteria will all qualify to apply.

ABO advises those interested in learning more to visit the Notice of Intent for Funding Opportunity on the DOE’s website.
