To support President Obama’s goal of reducing America’s oil imports by one-third by 2025, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture (USDA) and Energy (DOE) jointly announced up to US$30 million over three to four years that will support research and development in advanced biofuels, bioenergy and high-value bio-based products.
The projects funded through the Biomass Research and Development Initiative (BRDI) will help create a diverse group of economically and environmentally sustainable sources of renewable biomass and increase the availability of alternative renewable fuels and bio-based products.
