Sustainable Energy Seminar: Tim Donohue
On the Road to a Sustainable Energy System
Monday, September 11, 2017
With renewal for another 5 years, the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center will conduct research that enables the sustainable production of specialty biofuels and bio-products using dedicated bioenergy crops such as switchgrass, poplar trees and sorghum. These bioenergy crops will be grown on marginal – or non-agricultural – land, a shift from GLBRC’s previous mission of producing biofuels from crops grown on agricultural land. Past discoveries and future research directions will be discussed.
