Carbon Utilization Technology: Improving Efficient Systems for Algae
DE-FOA-0002654
Full announcement
This FOA specifically aims to increase the capability of algal systems to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) and put it to productive use. Capturing this waste carbon then allows for algae to be cultivated into a variety of biofuels and bioproducts. The deployment of algal technologies in these projects will help lower algal system cost, while decreasing GHG emissions. Additionally, this FOA will contribute to BETO’s goal of producing at least 3 billion gallons of sustainable aviation fuels by 2030. May 27, 2022

American Rescue Plan (ARP) Technical Assistance Investment program
USDA-NIFA-OP-009004
Full announcement
The primary goal of American Rescue Plan Technical Assistance Investment Program is to ensure improved understanding of and equitable participation in the full range of USDA programs and services among underserved farmers, ranchers, forest land owners and operators through supporting the organizational delivery of technical assistance projects and establishment of technical assistance networks. USDA is authorized to support and facilitate the establishment of technical assistance projects toward this goal. Projects must provide a range of technical assistance services to underserved agricultural producers. The term “agricultural producer” is used to refer to agricultural farmers, ranchers, and private forest land owners and operators. June 1, 2022

Agile BioFoundry Cooperative Research and Development Agreements
-
Full announcement
This funding opportunity provides resources for partners to collaborate with ABF’s investigators for developing novel microbial hosts, augmenting titer, rate and yield of bioproducts, and creating new capabilities and approaches to improve the Design-Build-Test-Learn biomanufacturing cycle. Proposals will leverage the consortium’s world-class capabilities to address challenges in biomanufacturing, as identified by the successful applicants from industry and academia. Submissions should also clearly identify how the work addresses BETO goals of supporting the decarbonization of various industrial sectors, including development of sustainable bio-based products, sustainable aviation fuels, or other impacts in transportation.

FY22 Waste Feedstock and Conversion R&D Funding
DE-FOA-0002636
Full announcement
The FY22 Waste Feedstock and Conversion R&D Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is for the development of improved organisms and inorganic catalysts to support the next generation of low-carbon biofuels and bioproducts. It supports the development of high-impact R&D to accelerate the growth of the bioeconomy and improve the economic and technical viability for turning burdensome and costly waste streams into valuable bioenergy resources. In particular, DOE will fund projects that help enable waste feedstocks utilization and robust conversion processes to produce low-carbon biofuels that reduce emissions from hard-to-decarbonize sectors such as aviation. The FOA has four topic areas: Municipal Solid Waste Feedstock Technologies Robust Microbial Cells Robust Catalytic Processes Community Scale Resource and Energy Recovery from Organic Wastes June 7, 2022

Earth Science: Agriculture
NNH22ZDA001N-AG
Full announcement
The primary objective of the Agriculture applications area is to enable and advance the adoption of uses of Earth science information by domestic and international organizations to benefit agriculture and related food security challenges. This application area includes application development, user characterization and engagement, innovative communications work, and socioeconomic impact analyses as part of the activities. With this program element, ASP is calling for proposals that address and enhance U.S. domestic agriculture only. This program element solicits proposals for a program management capability that increases and enables sustained uses of Earth science information for the advancement of domestic agricultural practices in public and private organizations for economic and social benefits. There is a strong preference for private sector, including commercial and nonprofit. ASP will select one proposal team to lead, develop, implement, and manage a consortium of experts and organizations for domestic agriculture applications development and uptake. ASP expects a considerable level of interaction and cooperation with the awardee, and, thus, it plans to pursue a cooperative agreement as the award instrument. June 17, 2022

Deploying Solar with Wildlife and Ecosystem Services Benefits (SolWEB)
DE-FOA-002605
Full announcement
This RFA is looking for innovative solutions and strategies that maximize benefits and minimize impacts to wildlife and ecosystems from solar energy infrastructure. DOE is interested in projects that will produce results with broad relevance to solar stakeholders by establishing methods, technologies, models, best management practices, or resources that facilitate ground-mounted photovoltaic energy generation, including utility-scale and community solar, or concentrating solar-thermal power that is compatible with surrounding wildlife. DOE is also interested in assessing and optimizing ecosystem benefits that solar energy facilities can provide, such as soil formation, pollination of food crops, and carbon sequestration. Topic Area 1: Wildlife-Solar Energy Interactions – 2-4 projects, $1-2M each Projects in this topic area will develop innovative methods or technologies for monitoring wildlife-solar interactions, maximizing benefits and mitigate adverse impacts on wildlife, or building data-sharing infrastructure regarding wildlife at solar energy facilities. Topic Area 2: Ecosystem Services from Solar Facilities – 2-4 projects, $500,000-$2M each Projects in this topic area will characterize, quantify, and/or optimize the ecosystem benefits that solar energy facilities can provide, such as soil formation, pollination of food crops, and carbon sequestration. Projects will improve solar energy siting practices by developing models, tools, or methodologies for assessing the cost and value of these benefits in solar energy deployment decisions.
