Demand for alternative fuels and other products made from renewable sources continue to increase as a means of protecting the environment and conserving natural resources. Research activities focus on the development of a range of bioproducts produced from renewable sources as well as the evaluation of suitable feedstocks as input into bioproduct production processes.
New Crops for Biofuel Production in Louisiana
In 2011, the LSU AgCenter embarked upon a five-year initiative, funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to develop crops that can be used for biofuel production across the southern United States, thus offering an opportunity to improve local farm incomes.
