In support of the Energy Center's mission of facilitating large, multi-year, interdisciplinary research proposals, the Energy Center has partnered with the Bioenergy community at Purdue. Bioenergy community at Purdue University consists of about 50 faculty members from College of Science, College of Agriculture, College of Technology, and College of Engineering, and are engaged in research areas ranging across the entire span from feedstock improvement to bio-processing to studying economics and policy aspects.
