Bioenergy & Bioproducts Engineering

Bioenergy & Bioproducts (BBE) scientists work toward advancing science and technologies to convert biomass, including wastes, into useful products, fuels, and fuel additives.  Highlights of our research program include:

  • Production lipid from lignocellulosics for upgrading into renewable jet fuels, diesel, and gasoline
  • Integrated algal fuel production including culture processes and extractions of co-products and lipids
  • Anaerobic digestion technologies for producing biogas, co-products, and nutrient recovery
  • Multiscale modeling of biorefining processes and systems
  • Devise feasible process to deconstruct  cellulosic biomass
  • Identify pathways to convert lignin to jet fuel
  • Biomass thermochemical conversions for producing advanced biofuels, chemicals, and bioproducts
