Berkeley Lab to build DOE advanced biofuels user facility
Date:3/31/2010

BERKELEY, CA The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has been awarded nearly $18 million from the Recovery Act to build an advanced biofuels process development facility. Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through its Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), this new facility will help expedite the commercialization of next generation biofuels by providing industry-scale test beds for innovative technologies. Called the Advanced Biofuels Process Development Unit (PDU), it will be the only facility of its kind available for public use.

"The Advanced Biofuels Process Development Unit will serve the efforts of major biofuels research across the nation, including the Bioenergy Research Centers in the DOE Office of Science," said Berkeley Lab director Paul Alivisatos. "The establishment by EERE of this facility at Berkeley Lab, a DOE Office of Science national laboratory, reflects a renewed spirit of cooperation between the DOE technology and science programs. Berkeley Lab is proud to play its part."

The announcement of this grant was made by DOE Assistant Secretary for EERE Cathy Zoi, speaking at the Biomass 2010 conference on March 31, 2010, in Arlington, Virginia. Her agency oversees DOE's Biomass Program, which has been awarded about $718 million in Recovery Act funds to accelerate the commercialization of advanced biofuels and foster the growth of a sustainable U.S. bioindustry.

"The Department of Energy is committed to developing cost-effective and sustainable advanced biofuels," Assistant Secretary Zoi said. "With this investment in the Advanced Biofuels PDU, we will vastly increase the capacity to test new innovative approaches on a larger, integrated scale. Scaling up these clean energy technologies is crucial to addressing climate change and building a strong, domestic clean energy economy."

The Advanced Biofuels PDU is scheduled to be fully operational by early 2011, and mul
