Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) - Clean Fuels & Products Shot: Supporting Carbon Utilization Products via Electrochemical Conversion and Refinery Retrofitting
The Department of Energy Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management will develop an opportunity funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Las Section 40302-Carbon Utilization Program, which amended Section 969A of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005) (42 U.S.C. 16298a). This Carbon Conversion program aims to develop commercially viable products that are derived from anthropogenic carbon oxides and demonstrate significant net reductions in lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions compared to incumbent technologies, processes, and products.
The two Areas of Interest (AOI) in this FOA are further delineated as follows:
Area of Interest 1 (AOI 1): Engineering-Scale Testing of Electrochemical Systems for the Conversion CO2 into Value-Added Products. The objective of this area of interest is to support engineering-scale R&D for electrochemical conversion of CO2 into value-added products (minimum value of $1/kg) with a specific focus on electrolyzer material set durability. Value-added products of interest include but are not limited to; engineering polymer/resin precursors, specialty chemicals, and commodity chemicals with a minimum value of $1/kg.
Area of Interest 2 (AOI 2): Retrofitting of Refineries for Carbon Conversion. The objective of this area of interest is to support feasibility studies examining the retrofitting of refineries for carbon utilization and production of value-added products. It is anticipated that responses and results of these studies could inform follow-on funding opportunities to advance proposed retrofit or renovations for carbon conversion.
