The Energy Department’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) has issued a request for information (RFI) regarding waste- to-energy (WTE) technologies. Waste Applications for Sustainable Technologies for Energy seeks feedback from stakeholders on the state of technology and commercial readiness of WTE.
WTE technologies repurpose a variety of waste sources using a variety of conversion processes to create bioenergy, biofuels, or bioproducts. The most common example involves the incineration of municipal solid waste. This RFI seeks input from industry, academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders to assist the Department and BETO with the development of a targeted program in advanced WTE technologies. The resulting submissions will inform the Department on the potential need for financial assistance to advance these technologies to achieve widespread commercialization.
Responses to the RFI must be submitted by 8:00 p.m. ET on July 15, 2013. To provide information or to learn more about the RFI, please read the full announcement.
