Our Synergy

C2B2’s Mission

The Colorado Center for Biorefining and Biofuels (C2B2) exists to improve fundamental understanding and develop new technologies in areas relevant to the future commercialization of integrated, sustainable biorefining and biofuels processes in accordance with the following objectives:

  • We seek to develop new understandings of biorefining and biofuel methodologies that are focused on the integration of renewable sources of materials and energy into the chemical industry.
  • We strive to provide relevant training for students (BS, MS, and PhD) and industrial scientists focused on researching and developing new biorefining and biofuel applications.
  • We work to create a vertically and horizontally integrated research and training environment, uniquely situated among three closely located universities and NREL, where academia, industry, and national labs collaborate in the development of biorefining and biofuels technologies for future commercialization.
