The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funds research, development, and demonstration to help develop sustainable and cost-competitive biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower. For biofuels, DOE has lowered the cost of non-food-based ethanol by more than $6 per gallon since 2001, and it is now projected to be cost competitive with gasoline when ramped up to a commercial scale. DOE is also supporting 25 new biorefineries that are being built throughout the United States.
