Biorefineries Getting $200 Million from DOE

The U.S. Department of Energy will provide up to $200 million during the next five fiscal years to support the development of small-scale cellulosic biorefineries in the United States, Secretary Samuel Bodman announced. The goal is to develop biorefineries at 10 percent of commercial scale to make liquid transportation fuels such as ethanol and chemicals and bioproducts for industrial use.

"This research will provide the next necessary step toward developing cellulosic biorefineries that can transform our transportation sector in a clean and cost-effective manner," Bodman said. "As world demand for energy continues to grow, so too must our supply of clean, domestic sources of energy. And cellulosic biofuels provide a promising way to meet President Bush's goal of displacing twenty percent of gasoline usage within the decade."

Today’s announcement advances DOE’s long-term strategy to reduce dependence on These latest projects complement DOE's recent announcement of up to $385 million over four years to develop six full-scale biorefineries.
