  • Overview

The CBR is one of several key elements of the Oklahoma Bioenergy Center. We are focused on the development of the science and technologies for the thermo-catalytic conversion of biomass to finished products that meet the needs of the fuels and chemical industries in a sustainable manner.

Strategy

To develop methods of converting biomass and biomass derived molecules using catalysis by molecular engineering. By understanding the nature of the molecular structures present in biomass and its primary products we can design the optimal thermal and catalytic conversions required to control the chemical pathways to efficiently produce the products that meet the required specifications for existing, and future, fuels and chemicals industries.
