Bioenergy

bioenergyCFES is working closely with researchers at RPI's Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) to develop new industrial partnership opportunities in bioenergy. CBIS research focus is to find alternatives to fossil fuels used in vehicles and for heating through solutions based on cellulosic ethanol and algae derived biodiesel.
