The NCERC is a not-for-profit research center focused on the validation of near-term technologies for enhancing the economics and sustainability of renewable fuel production. Alternate use of the facility for bioprocessing scale up or validation is also possible. T he Center conducts work for industrial or institutional Clients under confidentiality agreements on a fee-for-service basis.

The Center also conducts its own research in areas of unmet need by leading or participating in collaborative grant-funded research. Utilizing the pilot plant as an experiential classroom, the NCERC provides workforce development training on Corn-to-Ethanol production process to those interested in a career in the industry.

The facility has all of the unit operations and laboratory capabilities of a commercial facility albeit on a much smaller scale. These capabilities make the facility ideal for validating commercial concepts for improving fuel ethanol production, generating co-products for feeding trials or process streams for further development, toll use of individual or collective unit operations for other bioprocessing needs, and laboratory method development or analytical services.
