Mission

We conduct research to convert crops, crop residues, dedicated energy crops, and agricultural wastes into economically- and environmentally-sustainable biofuels and value-added coproducts. Thermochemical (fast pyrolysis), enzymatic, chemical, and fermentative processes are developed to convert these feedstocks into sustainable biofuels such as biodiesel, ethanol, advanced biofuels, and advanced crude bio-oil that can be refined to “green” gasoline and diesel. Our work supports the rural economy and US energy independence and helps minimize the impact of biofuels on existing food/feed supplies and markets.
The Sustainable Biofuels and Co-products Research is located in Wyndmoor, PA and is part of the Northeast Area.
The Research Leader is Cheng Kung Liu.
