In views of rising concerns over energy sustainability and global warming, the U.S. National Academies have identified renewable energy as a national scientific strategy aimed at replacing the oil-based refinery and transitioning to a green economy.

This website was originally developed by Dr. Q. Peter He at Tuskegee University (now at Auburn University) and Dr. Jin Wang at Auburn University to create educational materials that systematically integrate biofuels technology into undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum. The ultimate goal is to help prepare a technologically advanced workforce and innovative researchers for the biofuels technology field.

This website was based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1044300, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the Southeast Partnership for Integrated Biomass Supply Systems (IBSS).
