Plant Sensory Systems Awarded $1.8 Million from ARPA-E to Engineer Beets for Biofuel
Date:12/11/2012

y represent the true mission of ARPA-E: swinging for the fences and trying to hit home runs to support development of the most innovative technologies and change what’s possible for America’s energy future,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu.

Plant Sensory Systems’ Energy-Beet project is an innovative project whose goals are closely aligned with ARPA-E’s mission. If successful, the engineered beets will enhance the economic and energy security of the US by expanding and diversifying the biofuel feedstock in the US and increasing the biofuel production capacity per acre, and they will reduce energy-related emissions by requiring less nitrogen fertilizer.
