Research Institutions and Businesses Launch Renewable Fuels Venture
A joint venture among businesses and Colorado research institutions to further develop renewable fuels was announced at the state capitol in Denver.
The new Colorado Center for Biorefining and Biofuels (C2B2) is a research venture between large and small businesses and the newly formed Colorado Renewable Energy Collaboratory, the association of four of Colorado’s premier research institutions: the University of Colorado at Boulder, the Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). C2B2 will perform research to develop new biofuels and biorefining technologies and transfer these advances as rapidly as possible to the private sector.
NREL’s participation in the Collaboratory and the Collaboratory’s C2B2 project is through Midwest Research Institute (MRI), which manages NREL for the U.S. Department of Energy.
