About The National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts (NAABB)
The NAABB was created through the association of a large number of academic institutions, industrial companies, and national laboratories, to develop innovative technologies that will help bring biofuels to a commercial reality. In 2010 the NAABB received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Biomass Programs, to focus on the development of the algal biofuels industry. As a government and industry partnership, the NAABB will devote $49M of federal funds along with $20M of cost share commitments from its partners to new research, development and demonstration activities in algal biofuels. The NAABB will develop technologies for cost-effective production of algal biomass and lipids, economically fuels and co-products, and provide a framework for a sustainable biofuels industry.
