Biofuels Center Offering Grants to Advance Biofuels Commercialization

The Biofuels Center of North Carolina was established in 2007 by the General Assembly with the charge to increase the capacity for producing renewable transportation fuels within the state. The goal is “By 2017, 10 percent of liquid fuels sold in North Carolina will come from biofuels grown and produced within the state.”

One significant approach to reaching that goal has been the Biofuels Center’s grants program, and the organization is pleased to announce the current grants program Request for Proposals. In 2012, the Center will award funding through the program Advancing Biofuels Commercialization.

All required forms can be found on the Biofuels Center website by clicking on Grants. Required Letters of Intent to Apply are due 14 November 2011 and detailed applications are due 15 December 2011.

Applicants with questions may contact Biofuels Center Director of Contracts and Grants Kris Allsbury at or at (919) 693-3000, ext. 259.
