The Energy Department Announces $2 Million in Grants to Support Small Businesses

A thriving bioeconomy is just as reliant on America’s abundant sustainable biomass feedstocks as it is America’s innovative small business workforce. As part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office’s support to small businesses, the Office has awarded approximately $2 million, out of $13 million awarded by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, to 13 Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer grants.

These small businesses are improving the state of technology for algae crop development and harvesting, driving down the cost of converting wet organic waste streams to biofuels and bioproducts, and increasing the carbon efficiency of biomass conversion. Awardees come from across the United States, including Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, California, Washington, Colorado, and Hawaii. The geographic distribution and research diversity of awardees showcases how small businesses in every region of the United States have a role to play in the bioeconomy.
