About Great Lakes Bioenergy
The Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) is a cross-disciplinary research center led by the University of Wisconsin–Madison. With Michigan State University and other collaborators, GLBRC draws on the expertise of over 400 scientists, engineers, students, and staff to develop sustainable biofuels and bioproducts.
Created in 2007 by the U.S. Department of Energy, GLBRC focuses on three areas of research: sustainable cropping systems, efficient biomass conversion, and field-to-product integration. Together, we are helping to replace petroleum-derived fuels and products and enable a new generation of biorefineries.
Our mission is simple: creating biofuels and bioproducts that are economically viable and environmentally sustainable.
