Welcome to the Center for Biorenewable Chemicals (CBiRC)

BRL-Building-2
CBiRC will transform the chemical industry by integrating biological and chemical catalysis systems to produce biorenewable chemicals. CBiRC will also provide educational programs that attract a diverse set of students into the engineering field and produce a new cadre of globally competitive college graduates capable of designing integrated chemical/biological processing systems. CBiRC is funded by an $18.5 million, five-year award from the NSF Engineering Research Center Program, with additional support from institutional matching and industry memberships.
