As a Department of Energy (DOE) Bioenergy Research Center, we are positioned to make key discoveries and major advances that will lead to breakthrough technologies for eventual large-scale conversion of biomass into fuels.
Our purpose for engaging with industry and other private sector partners is two-fold:
- To inform and ensure the Center’s basic research and fundamental discoveries are relevant to industry needs.
- To accelerate the pace and increase the ratio at which GLBRC-developed technologies and fundamental discoveries are licensed for industrial biofuel production.
By establishing ongoing relationships with industry and private sector partners, our Center is poised to generate fundamental scientific discoveries that will lead to the commercial biofuel production from cellulosic biomass.
