ARPA-E has announced two new funding opportunities:
REMOTE (Reducing Emissions Using Methanotrophic Organisms for Transportation Energy) will develop transformational biological technologies to convert gas to liquids (GTL) for transportation fuels.
METALS (Modern Electro/Thermochemical Advancements for Light-Metal Systems) will develop innovative technologies for cost-effective processing and recycling of Aluminum, Magnesium and Titanium. METALS will also develop technologies for rapid and efficient light metal sorting to enable domestic recycling.
Concept Papers for both new funding opportunities are due by 5 p.m. EST on Monday, April 15, 2013. For more information on these new opportunities, including how to submit a Concept Paper or find teaming partners, please click here.
