In Illinois, the Center for Advanced BioEnergy Research at the University of Illinois has opened a renovated CABER Bioprocessing Laboratory, that will focus on increasing efficiencies in current biofuel technologies, and developing new biofuel and biochemical technologies. The 2500 square foot lab features wet milling, dry grind and ethanol fermentation equipment. Biomass processing equipment will be added in the future. Additional analytic capabilities will be coordinated with the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, part of the Prairie Research Institute.
