November 30, 2016BETO Launches Multi-Lab Consortium to Advance Separations Technology

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) announces the establishment of the Bioenergy Separations Consortium (BioESep)—a consortium of eight DOE national laboratories leading coordinated research to move cost-effective, high-performing separations technologies to market. Separations processes can involve physical processes, like separating solids from liquids, or chemical processes, like purifying mixtures of molecules. To convert biomass to biofuels, many challenging separations are required, such as removing water from algae or taking contaminants out of sugar streams, before microbes or catalysts can further process them to fuels or products.
