Jan. 7, 2010, Greenville, SC – The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities has
released a biomass-related request for pre-proposals: Woody Bio-based
Energy: Demonstrating New Processes and Practices to Sustainably Produce Green
Energy, Provide Markets for Low-value Trees and add Jobs in Rural Communities. The RFP opens
immediately and closes on February 12, 2010.
The Endowment is seeking pre-proposals from qualified service providers who can
address the potential of woody biomass for energy at two different places in
the value chain:
A. Taking promising conversion technology from the
laboratory to demonstration level. The Endowment’s intent is to provide partial
funding for one or more tangible projects that can quickly show (or disprove)
the commercial potential of the technology.
B. Develop one or more demonstrations of how
consumers of woody biomass for energy might collaborate with others to develop
new wood procurement, land ownership, or land management models that provide
sustained sources of woody biomass while ensuring the underlying forests are
retained in forest cover.Advertisement
