The Laboratory of Renewable Resources Engineering
The Laboratory of Renewable Resources Engineering (LORRE) carries out fundamental research and educates students in the transformation of renewable resources and agricultural commodities into value-added products, and in the purification of proteins and natural products. In addition to publications and patents, products of LORRE’s work include prototypes for the purpose of translating its discoveries into industrial use. Thesis and fundamental research topics are pursued in partnership with universities, and government laboratories. Research includes engineering and molecular fundamentals of bioreactor design, bioseparations, industrial biology of yeast, and biochemical catalysis with applications in biofuels, bioproducts, and pathogen detection..
