U.S. Endowment for Forestry Seeks Proposals for Woody Biomass Energy Demonstration Projects

The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities is seeking pre-proposals for grants of up to $250,000 to develop demonstration projects for the conversion of woody biomass to energy.

The Endowment will award grants of up to $250,000 (but not more than $750,000 in total) for proposals that can convert laboratory technology for converting woody biomass to energy in a way that is sustainable, economically viable and produces employment opportunities.

The Endowment is a non-profit corporation created in 2006 as part of a bilateral agreement between the U.S. and Canada.  The Endowment’s approach in this RFP is to find solutions that have not yet been developed to commercial scale, for harvesting trees in forests that are not suitable for traditional lumbering.

Proposals are due on February 12, 2010 and must be submitted through the Endowment’s online grant system.
