CenUSA Bioenergy’s vision is to create a Midwestern regional system for producing advanced transportation fuels and bioproducts using perennial grasses grown on marginal lands.

In cooperation with the University of Minnesota and Iowa State University extension programs, CenUSA has been working with Master Gardeners to determine if biochar is a good soil amendment for home gardens.

For more information see the CenUSA’s Web page or contact Jill Euken, Deputy Director, Bioeconomy Insitute, Iowa State, jeuken@iastate.edu.
