The U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) transportation biofuels research aims to accelerate the production of climate-friendly, sustainable fuels capable of decarbonizing heavy modes of transportation. Made from widely available domestic feedstocks and advanced refining technologies, energy-dense biofuels provide a pathway for lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the aviation and maritime sectors while invigorating the bioeconomy.
Transportation Biofuels Portfolio
BETO advances sustainable aviation fuels through research and development in the areas of feedstocks, fuel conversion, and scale-up.
BETO invests in research, development, and demonstration of low- and net-zero-carbon sustainable marine fuels to help decarbonize even the largest seagoing vessels.
