Questions Regarding Funding Opportunity Announcements

Please contact the ARPA-E-CO@hq.doe.gov email address for questions regarding Funding Opportunity Announcements. Upon the issuance of a FOA, only the Contracting Officer may communicate with Applicants. ARPA-E personnel and our support contractors are prohibited from communicating (in writing or otherwise) with Applicants regarding the FOA. This “quiet period” remains in effect until ARPA-E’s public announcement of its project selections.

ARPA-E will not pre-assess an Applicant’s proposal. Prospective Applicants must review the technical requirements of the FOA and independently determine whether their proposed concept warrants a submission.

DE-FOA-0000671: Request for Information (RFI) on Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0000671 for Chemo/electro-autotrophic Synthesis of Liquid Fuels at Scale

 

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is solely to solicit input for ARPA-E consideration to inform the possible development of future chemo/electro-autotrophic fuel production programs.  Information obtained may be used by ARPA-E on a non-attribution basis.  This RFI provides biofuel and bioproducts stakeholders with an opportunity to contribute views and opinions regarding the requirements to transition bench-scale (e.g. microgram–milligram L-1h-1 production rates) chemo/electro-autotrophic fuel production technologies to efficient and cost competitive integrated chemo/electro-autotrophic fuel production platforms (e.g. multi-gram L-1h-1 production rates at scale).  Views are sought regarding various microbial systems, energy assimilation strategies, bioreactor development, scaling parameters, fuel/fuel precursor products, and cost of fuel/fuel precursor products, overall cost of program development and path to market adoption. 

 

The information you provide may be used by ARPA-E in support of program planning. THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ONLY.  THIS NOTICE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA).  NO FOA EXISTS AT THIS TIME.
