The mission of the Integrated Bioprocessing Research Laboratory (IBRL) is to advance research and education focused on renewable food, fuel and fiber-based processing platforms and to stimulate bio-economic development in the State of Illinois through translational scale-up of developed technologies leading to commercialization.
Celebration of Construction
University, state, and industry officials came together on Oct. 22 to celebrate the announcement of a unique facility coming to the University of Illinois campus. The Integrated Bioprocessing Research Laboratory, or IBRL, will be a flexible, plug-and-play, pilot scale facility and analytical laboratory that will bring faculty, students, and industry together to develop efficient and economical strategies for the production of renewable bio-based products. The facility will be housed on the campus of the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES).
