18 pilot and demonstration DOE bioenergy projects, reviewed

BD TS 051815 peer reviewWhat’s the latest with such projects such as Frontline BioEnergy, Myriant, POET-DSM, INEOS Bio, Sapphire Energy, Abengoa, Haldor Topsoe, UOP. ZeaChem, Mercurius, and American Process, among others?

In Washington this June 25th, the Department of Energy will publish its annual 2015 Project Peer Review final report, at its annual Program Management Review, which immediately follows the BETO annual conference, themed Bioenergy 2015: Opportunities in a Changing Energy Landscape (which is June 23-24).

This year’s review features 190 projects across seven key technology areas, representing a combined value of approximately $403 million from Fiscal Years 2013-2014.

As BETO Director Jonathan Male notes, “The Project Peer Review is an invaluable opportunity for external experts to rigorously evaluate the relevance, context, technical approach, progress, results, and overall merit of all the projects supported by our Office. We also rely on the peer review process to provide an overall assessment of our management of each technology area and the overall strategic direction and future outlook for BETO.”

But why wait for the review? You can access a complete treasure trove of 185 presentations on the latest in bioenergy technology, right now, and assess for yourself the state of projects in the BETO portfolio.

In today’s Digest, we’ve focused on on the “DEMONSTRATION AND MARKET TRANSFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AREA “, some of the most complex, best-known, and most transfiormative bioenergy technology projects ever attempted.
