Research Project: Southeast Partnership for Advanced Renewables from Carinata-SPARC

Location: Coastal Plain Soil, Water and Plant Conservation Research

Project Number: 6082-21000-009-001-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 15, 2017
End Date: Jul 14, 2024

Objective:
The long-term goal of the proposed project is the development of a resilient, year-round, lipid based biofuel and bio products supply chain in the southeast U.S. (SE US). This supply chain will derive from a winter based oilseed crop grown in rotation with cotton, peanuts, and other traditional spring/summer crops.

Approach:
We will use a multi-disciplinary academic, industry, and end user approach comprising of crop production, engineering, natural resource conservation, and bio-product development.
