National Program 213: Biorefining


Program Vision & Relevance


The ARS Biorefining Program enables new commercially-viable technologies to (1) convert agricultural materials and byproducts into fuels and other marketable products, and (2) reduce risks and increase profitability in existing industrial biorefineries. Whenever possible, research under the Biorefining Program is closely coordinated with ARS research in the USDA Regional Biomass Research Centers so as to integrate new, commercial biorefining capacity into existing agricultural production systems as quickly as possible.
