Transportation fuels from algae

In February, the DoE Biomass Program announced a $14 million programme to develop transportation fuels from algae. Two areas are covered: 1) development and demonstration of integrated cultivation and recycling technologies for algal biomass production that demonstrate minimal water and external nutrient inputs and/or the use of waste/effluent nutrients, and 2) establishment of Regional Algal Feedstock Test Bed partnerships. Projects will receive up to $14.3 million in 2012, and potentially another $6.7 million in 2014.

All grants can be searched here.
