CBiRC administrative offices and the labs of several faculty affiliates are located in the Biorenewables Research Laboratory (BRL), one of three buildings in the Biorenewables Complex on the west side of the ISU campus (see map).

The BRL is a visible “front door” to the university’s many diverse and broad-reaching programs in biorenewables. The 72,971 square foot facility, completed in 2010, provides affiliated faculty and staff a physical environment that promotes interdisciplinary, systems-level research and collaboration, including laboratory, meeting, and teaching space for both graduate and undergraduate students.  Construction was made possible through a generous appropriation from the State of Iowa.
