Reinventing energy

At CCEI, we’re developing a range of new catalysts that will convert inedible biomass—things like wood, switchgrass and other organic waste—into sugars and oils that can be used in fuels and chemicals.

We develop innovative catalytic technologies to efficiently convert biomass, such as trees and grasses, into chemicals and fuels.

CCEI is led both inside and outside the lab by a diverse, multi-institutional coalition of scientists, scholars, and engineers.

We pursue an integrated approach to solving scientific and engineering problems that span across scales and disciplines.
