The Biofuels and Bio-Based Products Laboratory at Michigan Tech is focused on the economic and sustainable development of industries based on lignocellulosic biomass, or materials derived from plant cell walls. We are focused on 1) improving our understanding of the influence of environment and genetics on the characterstics and conversion of diverse plant materials and 2) developing novel co-products derived from side streams from biofuel and pulp and paper production.
