The Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) is one of three Bioenergy Research Centers established in 2007 by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, and is led by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with Michigan State University as the major partner.
The only DOE Bioenergy Research Center based at an academic institution, the GLBRC is guided by an educational philosophy that emphasizes understanding the complex relationships among energy production, technology, economics, society and the environment. By combining this philosophy with a highly collaborative atmosphere and the expertise of members across the country, the GLBRC is positioned to move promising developments and technology through the biofuels pipeline more quickly.
Participating member institutions range across academia, government and industry, demonstrating the collaborative spirit that lies at the core of the GLBRC's mission. A summary of institutions that have participated as GLBRC members to date is presented here.
