Biomass Feedstocks Innovation Programme

The project development stage of the Biomass Feedstocks Innovation Programme is now open for applications.

The Biomass Feedstocks Innovation Programme, launched March 2021, aims to increase the production of sustainable domestic biomass by funding innovative ideas that address barriers to biomass feedstock production. It will support those who are seeking to improve productivity, through breeding, planting, cultivating and harvesting.

BEIS has £4 million of competitive funding for the project development stage, with up to £200,000 of full funding available per project (there is no opportunity for applicants to obtain match funding). This will enable suppliers to develop strong project proposals that will deliver commercially viable innovations in biomass production.

The Biomass Feedstocks Innovation Programme is seeking the best ideas from across the UK. The funding aims to support organisations, including small and medium-sized enterprises, who have the technical capability and project management expertise to deliver strong proposals.
