Bioenergy researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will receive federal money for another five years. This time the scientists will shift their work away from focusing on using crops grown on agricultural land to create fuel.

The Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) has been chosen by the U.S. Department of Energy for a third, five-year grant, according to the center. The amount received will depend on future federal budgets, but university officials say they hope the annual figure will remain around $25 million.
