Inflation Reduction Act Funding for Advanced Biofuels
Golden Field Office
The Golden Field Office of the Department of Energy (DOE-GFO) has posted a grant opportunity titled "Inflation Reduction Act Funding for Advanced Biofuels". This funding opportunity is a cooperative agreement under the category of Science and Technology and other Research and Development. The grant aims to provide $9.4 million in total program funding for the development and integration of advanced biofuels. The grant is funded by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022, which authorized $10 million to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for new grants to industry in advanced biofuels. The EPA and DOE have entered into an Interagency Agreement to transfer the funds to DOE and allow DOE to manage a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) with substantial involvement from EPA. The FOA focuses on two topic areas: the EPA's priority in the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program and DOE BETO's priority in the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Grand Challenge, as well as the Systems Development and Integration (SDI) priority in supporting four demonstration-scale integrated biorefineries by 2030. Applicants must be domestic entities, and if the prime recipient is not a for-profit industry entity providing technical capability, one or more for-profit entity industry partners must participate as subrecipients with an aggregate effort equivalent to at least 20% of the total cost of the project. The proposed technology must meet the RFS definition of advanced biofuel, which includes using allowable feedstocks, producing allowable fuel types, and achieving lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions reductions of at least 50% compared to petroleum baseline. The close date for this grant opportunity is May 24, 2024, and it is expected that five awards will be made. The award ceiling is $9.4 million, with an award floor of $1.
