DOE to invest up to US$4.4m in six innovative biofuels projects at US universities

September 24th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Fuel-Research

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the selection of six advanced biofuels projects in which DOE plans to invest up to US$4.4 million, subject to annual appropriations. These awards to U.S. institutions of higher education will support research and development (R&D) for cost-effective, environmentally friendly biomass conversion technologies for turning non-food feedstocks into advanced biofuels. Combined with the minimum university cost share of 20 percent, more than $5.7 million is slated for investment in these six projects.

The following six projects were competitively selected for negotiation of awards:

The University of Toledo will address development of cost-effective biocatalysts capable of increasing product yield in the biological conversion of lignocellulosic biomass.

Steven’s Institute of Technology’s New Jersey Center (Hoboken, N. J.) for MicroChemical Systems with Catalysts LLC is planning to evaluate and demonstrate a novel microchannel reactor to reform pyrolysis oil to synthesis gas (syngas).

Montana State University will partner with Utah State University to evaluate the oil content of algae cultures available to the universities and identify populations that naturally have higher rates of oil production.

University of Georgia plans to develop novel approaches to supply nutrients to oil-producing algal systems resulting in cost-effective algae-biofuel production systems.

The University of Maine in conjunction with several industry and academic partners is planning to determine the optimal yield and productivity of high potential bacteria at moderate to high temperatures.

Georgia Tech Research Corporation plans to evaluate and model the reaction kinetics in two experimental gasifiers using forest residues under different processing conditions.
