The Center for Sustainable Environmental Technologies, which began as an AMPP initiative, is now part of a core research program at ISU’s Bioeconomy Institute. It seeks to promote, develop, and demonstrate thermochemical technologies (using heat, pressure, and catalysts) for the production of fuels, chemicals, and power from biomass and fossil fuels.
