  DE-FOA-0000470 Plants Engineered To Replace Oil (PETRO) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) 5/19/2011 05:00 PM ET 7/18/2011 05:00 PM ET

DE-FOA-0000470: Plants Engineered To Replace Oil (PETRO)

Technologies for low-cost production of advanced biofuels are limited by the small amount of available energy captured by photosynthesis and the inefficient processes used to convert plant matter to fuel. PETRO aims to create plants that capture more energy from sunlight and convert that energy directly into fuels. ARPA-E seeks to fund technologies that optimize the biochemical processes of energy capture and conversion to develop robust, farm-ready crops that deliver more energy per acre with less processing prior to the pump. If successful, PETRO will create biofuels for half their current cost, finally making them cost-competitive with fuels from oil.s.
