About FCRC

FCRC was established in January 2002 with the primary goal of facilitating research and graduate education throughout the State University System in the multi-disciplinary areas of renewable chemicals and fuels. The Center provides a vehicle to solve new technological challenges, serves as a forum to foster productive interactions among faculty and students, assists faculty in the development of competitive research grants, and increases the visibility of this important activity at the state and national levels.

FCRC promotes a new concept in Florida with broad implications at the national and international levels – the creation of biorefineries that use renewable products from agriculture as feedstocks to replace petroleum-based products.
