Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center files for 100th patent

January 26, 2015 |

In Wisconsin, the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC), one of the Department of Energy’s three bioenergy research centers, has celebrated the filing of its 100th patent application. Since 2011, GLBRC has reported inventions at a rate that exceeds expectations for a university entity of its size and funding level by 50 percent. Reflective of GLBRC’s cross-disciplinary research mission, the discoveries are highly collaborative in nature and cut across diverse areas of research.

Led by the University of Wisconsin–Madison and major partner Michigan State University, GLBRC consists of more than 400 scientists, students and staff organized around a central mission: to develop a robust and sustainable pipeline for producing biofuels and chemicals from the non-edible, or cellulosic, portion of plants. Several technology transfer organizations, including the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, Michigan State University Technologies and Texas A&M’s Office of Technology Commercialization, support the center’s intellectual property efforts and enable the licensing of its technologies.
