Aqueous Biomass Processing Laboratory


What do corn stover, switchgrass, and woody crops have in common? These materials, along with municipal solid waste and other crops, can be converted into biofuels, which are derived from living matter and its biological processes. These waste products are abundant, renewable, and not competitive with food products, but very expensive to process in terms of both money and energy.

The CE-CERT Aqueous Biomass Processing Team is focused on understanding the fundamentals of and developing novel technologies for conversion of cellulosic biomass into sustainable fuels and chemicals at moderate temperatures in water rich environments.
