Established by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2007, the GLBRC conducts the basic research that generates technology to convert non-food, or cellulosic, plant biomass to biofuels. The center offers a variety of materials to support science education, including classroom activity packages and programs.
The GLBRC is headquartered on the Wisconsin campus inside the new Wisconsin Energy Institute along with a major partner, Michigan State University. With over 400 scientists, students and staff representing a wide array of disciplines from microbiology to economics and engineering, the Center's collaborative spirit illustrates how cooperation among academic, federal and private sector researchers can generate an entity that is greater than the sum of its parts.
