SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose of Meeting: To discuss research and development needed to achieve affordable, scalable, and sustainable algae-based biofuels. Tentative Agenda: The workshop will include presentations on current research and development (R&D) strategies by DOE’s BETO Algae Program, including explanation of the Multi-Year Program Plan, Technology Pathways, and technical targets, and will allow time for participant questions and open discussion of the Program’s approach. The agenda will feature an R&D Breakthrough Round Robin, which will be an open forum for brief talks given to the general session by workshop participants. There will also be ten breakout sessions focused on priority areas in: (1) Algal Biology, (2) Cultivation, (3) Processing and Conversion, (4) Scaling and Integration, and (5) Analysis and Sustainability. Public Participation: Members of the public are encouraged to participate in the open discussions of the workshop.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As stated in the Bioenergy Technologies Office’s (BETO’s) Multi-Year Program Plan, the mission of BETO is to develop and transform our renewable biomass resources into commercially viable, high-performance biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower through targeted research, development, demonstration, and deployment supported through public and private partnerships. One of the options being pursued by BETO involves developing technologies capable of producing a bio-oil intermediate to be used as a petroleum refinery feedstock, leveraging existing infrastructure. BETO wants to identify the next step(s) in gathering information about the physiochemical properties, reactivities, and compatibilities of intermediates to petroleum refineries. Understanding and specifying bio-oil intermediate requirements for use in petroleum refineries and the limitations of the distribution infrastructure are critical. The workshop will convene university, national laboratory, industry, advocacy, government, and other stakeholders from both the renewable energy and petroleum refining industries to discuss the potential for bio-oil co-processing, challenges currently facing the refining industry, and the advantages that could be realized in a co-processing partnership.
