The NSF's Engineering Research Center For Biorenewable Chemicals

CBiRC will transform the chemical industry by integrating biological and chemical catalysis systems to produce biorenewable chemicals. CBiRC will also provide educational programs that attract a diverse set of students into the engineering field and produce a new cadre of globally competitive college graduates capable of designing integrated chemical/biological processing systems. CBiRC is funded by an $18.5 million, five-year award from the NSF Engineering Research Center Program, with additional support from institutional matching and industry memberships.
