The purpose of this request for information (RFI) is solely to solicit input for DOE consideration in the development of future algal biofuels research, development, and deployment (RD&D) programs. Information obtained in response to this RFI will be used by DOE on a non-attribution basis. Although DOE may determine as the result of this RFI to issue a formal Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), there is no guarantee that future funding opportunities or other activities will be undertaken as a result of this RFI.
This RFI provides algae stakeholders with an opportunity to contribute their views to help inform the development of OBP?s strategic plans, requirements, and metrics for a potential research and development (R&D) program focused on enhancing the yield of algal biofuel intermediates. DOE is interested in stakeholders? input regarding multiple types of algae, including microalgae, cyanobacteria, and macroalgae. Specifically, the OBP requests information from algal biofuel developers to help establish appropriate scope, scale, and metrics for consideration in developing two topics: A.) Reductions in Downstream Processing Costs; and B.) Improved Algal Biomass Productivity.
