Biorefinery, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Assistance Program – Technology


To be eligible for the program, a technology must be adopted in a viable commercial-scale operation or demonstrated to have technical and economic potential for commercial application in a biorefinery that produces an advanced biofuel.

Advanced biofuels are fuels derived from renewable biomass, other than corn kernel starch, and include:

  • Biofuel derived from cellulose, hemicellulose, or lignin
  • Biofuel derived from sugar and starch (other than ethanol derived from corn kernel starch)
  • Biofuel derived from waste material, including crop residue, other vegetative waste material, animal waste, food waste, and yard waste
  • Diesel-equivalent fuel derived from renewable biomass, including vegetable oil and animal fat
  • Biogas (including landfill gas and sewage waste treatment gas) produced through the conversion of organic matter from renewable biomass
  • Other fuel derived from cellulosic biomass
