- A 75% cut for bioenergy technologies at the Department of Energy
- Algae R&D funding cut from $30 million to $5 million
- Carbon capture and reuse research cut by $7 million
- Discontinued support of any bioenergy pilot- or demonstration-scale projects
- Elimination of the DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E)
These are just a few of the cuts that would reverse US technology leadership, force layoffs, reduce post-doc funding and possibly end the nation-wide effort to transform algae cultivation into a sustainable engine for economic growth, nutrition, energy, medicine and more.
ABO is already beginning to fight for the reversal of these cuts. If you have benefited from federal support, please reach out to us with your story by taking this short survey.
