UW-Madison bioenergy center teams with high school on cellulosic ethanol

December 24, 2015 |

In Wisconsin, the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) at UW-Madison has teamed with a local high school on a bioprospecting project that is teaching students how to discover new potential production pathways for biofuels. Students have collected potentially yeast-bearing materials from around their campus to try to identify the right yeast to boost production yields, from wood bark to soil and a rotten apple that was then applied to table sugar and grass as potential feedstocks for the ethanol production.
