Oklahoma Researchers Work to Convert Grasses into Biofuels

November 17, 2008

STILLWATER, OK --- Researchers at Oklahoma State University have received a $20 million grant for their work toward converting grasses into biofuels.

According to an Associated Press report, the Oklahoma Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research has received a combined $20 million from the National Science Foundation and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Researchers will use the grant funds to pay for basic research on Oklahoma switchgrass that can be converted into biofuel.

Researchers also will be working with other plant and feedstock varieties, including Bermuda grass. The funds will also enable the team to hire new faculty, buy supplies and materials, and conduct an outreach education program.
