The intent of this site is for us to share news, observations (and sometimes opinions) on issues related to bioenergy, and energy in general. It was started as an outlet for students in the IGERT program in Biofuels and Biorefining at Colorado State University to share what we are learning (and doing) with the public.
More information regarding our program can be found here:
Contributions are not limited to members of our program – we are always looking for new content! If you would like to contribute, contact us here!
