This Grass is Greener

What's Biofuel got to do with Climate Change and Clean Energy?

Event Details

Thursday, September 24, 2020
4-5 p.m.
Scientists are on a mission to find ways to sustainably make fuels and products from plants like switchgrass and poplar instead of from petroleum. How does this fit into the transition to clean energy? Join us during National Clean Energy Week to meet researchers from the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center who work every day in the fields and the labs to turn plants into fuel.

This event is free and open to anyone. Note that the event will run from 4:00 - 5:00 pm Central time.
