University of Illinois to Create BioEnergy Center

Dr. Hans Blaschek recently announced to the Illinois Farm Bureau that the University of Illinois is in the process of putting together the Center for Advanced BioEnergy Research (CABER).

The University of Illinois will soon pull together its renewable energy and
bio-based research expertise and projects in one place, Hans Blaschek, U of I
assistant dean of agriculture ex-periment research station, told the Illinois
Agricultural Legislative Roundtable last week.
“The maturation of biology now
is allowing scientists to do things we haven’t been a able to do before,”
Blaschek said.
A new Center for Ad-vanced BioEnergy Research (CABER) will
fill a need to link energy-related scientists and research across the university
— and the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences (ACES)
is taking the lead, according to Blaschek.
