Two grants to ASU for transformational research will help change the way the U.S. generates and consumes energyTags: arizona state university, biodesign institute, biofuel
[Source: ASU] - The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded Arizona State University two grants for alternative energy research that are part of a special DOE program to pursue high-risk, high-reward advances with the potential to change the way the nation generates and consumes energy.
ASU’s grants, totaling more than $10 million, are among 37 new DOE grants totaling $151 million to support the program.
ASU’s grants are for work on a new class of high-performance metal-air batteries and the use of photosynthetic bacteria to produce automotive fuel from a combination of sunlight, water and carbon dioxide.
Now available: “Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap 2014-2025: Advancing the Biosciences and Improving Health Outcomes,” is now available along with its supplement, “Summary of Goals, Strategies, and Potential Actions.” An overview by Walter Plosila, Ph.D., Battelle senior advisor, is also available. The updated Roadmap provides a long-term strategy for Arizona to achieve bioscience success over the next decade.
