Bioenergy Technologies Office Overcoming Barriers to Renewable Fuel Scale-up and Demonstration Request for Information (RFI) DE-FOA-0002615

Funding Agency:
Department of Energy

This RFI seeks input from biofuels producers and technology developers about their readiness to scale process technologies to pilot- and demonstration-scale sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), renewable diesel and renewable marine fuels. This information is necessary for DOE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) to chart the potential growth of domestic renewable fuels production by 2030 and to understand the barriers in scaling renewable fuel production pathways. This RFI also seeks information on how DOE can best assist biofuels production stakeholdersin their research and development (R&D) and scaling up of their technologies through demonstration scale.

BETO seeks input from bioenergy companies that are planning to scale up and demonstrate SAF, renewable diesel and renewable marine fuel technologies from the lower Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) to the pilot and demonstration stage and eventual commercialization. This information will inform a multi-year scale-up strategy resulting in the construction and operation of several SAF, renewable diesel and/or renewable marine fuelproduction pathways.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to no later than 5:00pm (ET) on January 31, 2022.
