College of Engineering / Center for Bioenergy and Bioproducts / About


Alabama is a state rich in renewable forest and agricultural resources, many of which may be the keys to new forms of energy and products that could reduce our dependence on petroleum based energy sources and create new jobs and sources of income to our state. The Bioenergy and Bioproducts Center at Auburn University was established to help bring both natural and human resources to bear on bioenergy and bioproduct opportunities in our state and region.

Auburn's location at the center of a region rich in renewable forest and agricultural biomass resources, and its status as the state's largest land-grant and comprehensive research university make it ideally suited to address these issues.

The Auburn University Bioenergy and Bioproducts Center is a catalyst for the development of bioenergy and bioproduct ideas, which, ultimately, will enhance Alabama's economy and the quality of life for all citizens of the state.
