Two Arizona State University biofuel projects are among six nationwide receiving $10 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to explore innovative solutions in bioenergy.
The six projects will support the Bioenergy Technologies Office's work to develop renewable and cost-competitive biofuels from non-food biomass feedstock. This funding will also support the development of a more robust bioeconomy, which can create green jobs, spur innovation, improve the environment and achieve national energy security.
