Researchers at Iowa State University are working to produce biocrude and other products from biomass at prototype pyrolysis and gasification plants in Ames, Iowa. "What makes this facility one of a kind is that it isn't limited to a single biomass, but can take all biomass products for conversion to fuels," said Robert Brown, director of the Iowa State University Bioeconomy Institute. The project seeks to yield a marketable product by 2022, Brown added.
