Biofuels and Bioproducts Recovery

The project works with agricultural industries in developing technologies and strategies to recover and use waste materials as economically valuable byproducts; i.e., blend chitin and pomace with glycerin to form rigid, biodegradable containers for the horticulture industry. Other efforts include development and use of biodegradable, edible films/coatings, to prolong shelf life of fruits and vegetables. The project also develops bioproducts and biofuels from dairy and feedlot wastes, such as methane and other products, while providing outreach and education on these efforts to the state.
