Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have been awarded up to $3.3 million for a project that would produce chemicals from biomass.

The grant was one of five announced Thursday by the U.S. Energy Department. The agency awarded a total of $13.4 million for projects that aim to help develop advanced biofuels as well as biioproducts, the agency said.

"These products not only will help reduce carbon emissions, but also advanced the department's work to enable the production of clean, renewable and cost-competitive drop-in biofuel at $3 per gallon by 2022," the agency said.
