UGA discovery may allow scientists to make fuel from CO2 in the atmosphere
A new discovery may soon lead to the creation of biofuels made directly from the carbon dioxide in the air that is responsible for trapping the sun's rays and raising global temperatures.
As our nation looks to plants to satisfy its growing energy demands, University of Georgia researchers are searching for answers to both long-term and near-term research questions associated with bioenergy production.

Bioenergy Systems Research Institute (BSRI) unites the University’s legacies in agriculture, forestry, environmental science and engineering with its strengths in carbohydrate science, genetics and microbiology to provide a scientific and practical foundation to support an economic and sustainable bioenergy future.
