DOE's Feedstock-Conversion Interface Consortium Report FY20 Research
Tuesday, January 5, 2021
Led by the U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office, the Feedstock-Conversion Interface Consortium (FCIC) recently published its Annual Review of Research Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 report. The FCIC is a multi-lab collaboration focused on developing knowledge and tools to understand, quantify, and mitigate the effects of feedstock and process variability across the bioenergy value chain. These efforts, addressing variability from the field and forest through downstream conversion, target a fundamental challenge facing biorefineries today.
The report presents an overview of the accomplishments of FCIC researchers for FY2020, covering both the low- and high-temperature conversion pathways and all three process areas (feedstock harvest and storage, preprocessing, and conversion). In the report, key research achievements of each process area are presented, along with planned FY2021 work that will build on FY2020 accomplishments. Read the full report.
