Partnering with the BioCentury Research Farm

The BioCentury Research Farm is the first-in-the-nation integrated research and demonstration facility dedicated to biomass production and processing. This facility presents a unique opportunity for faculty and industry collaboration. It will accelerate innovation and production capacity associated with biorefineries to produce biobased fuels, chemicals, and products. Collaborations for developing sustainable technologies will provide solutions that pave the way to meet national energy, economic, and environmental directives.

Building partnerships with Iowa State University faculty and industry is an important part of achieving the BioCentury Research Farm's mission and goals. Through these partnerships, faculty and industry can collaborate on research, development, demonstration, and training on new biofuels and bioproducts. The BioCentury Research Farm and the Bioeconomy Institute offer a variety of opportunities to become involved in biorenewables research at Iowa State.
