In July 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) released a request for information (RFI) to seek input from industry, academia, national laboratories, and other biofuels and bioproducts stakeholders to identify existing capabilities to produce lignocellulosic sugars and lignin for use by the research community. The purpose of this RFI is to develop a comprehensive list of suppliers who are willing and able to produce and sell cellulosic sugar and/or lignin for use by the research community.
BETO has made this list of RFI responses available on its website, providing a table with the organization, location, feedstock, process, and capacity/quantity. Users can select and open each RFI response to obtain more details and read them in full.
BETO intends to leave the RFI open indefinitely and will continue to collect and post responses.
