On April 27, the Department of Defense released a $30 million Funding Opportunity Announcement for Phase 1 of a $210 million effort to establish the commercial-scale manufacture of drop-in replacement transportation biofuels for aviation and marine diesel use. The first phase, which is applicable to this FOA, is expected to include five awards at up to $6 million each ($30 million total). Up to three Phase 2 awards are expected at approximately $70 million each ($180 total Government share). Only $100 million is from FY12, so total funding depends on future appropriations, and awardees selected for phases 1 and 2 will be required to share at least 50% of the cost. Phase 1 involves planning and preliminary design of a domestic Integrated Biofuels Production Enterprise (IBPE) with at least a 10 million gallon per year capacity, while Phase 2 includes the construction, commissioning, and performance testing of such a facility. Responses are due August 13, 2012, and awards will be announced on March 1, 2013.
