University of Kentucky Renewable Fuels Laboratory Now Open

UK Renewable Lab

The open access laboratory is available to all Kentucky biofuels researchers. It is located at the University of Kentucky's Center for Applied Energy Research and the Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering.

The Renewable Fuels Laboratory is intended to improve processes for biomass use, with the goal of supporting the development of the biofuels industry in Kentucky. The Commonwealth is well positioned to become a leader in biofuels production. The state's abundance of natural resources, including forestry wastes and agricultural residues, in addition to crops such as corn and soybeans, offers a huge resource of biomass. The laboratory facilities are housed at the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (UK CAER) and the Biosystems and Agriculture Engineering Department (BAE) in the College of Agriculture. The laboratory is open for use by researchers from other UK departments, as well as to researchers in other Kentucky institutions working in the field of biofuels.

Available services include but are not limited to autoclave reactors, GC, GC/MS, and GC/Simulated Distillation. If you are interested please contact Mark Crocker or Tonya Morgan or Czarena Crofcheck for more information.
