Lawrence Berkeley Lab opens biofuels test center in Emeryville

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory opened a 15,000 square foot biofuels research center in Emeryville this week.
The Advanced Biofuels Process Demonstration Unit, or ABPDU, will allow large scale tests of processes developed in laboratory work. The biofuels in the center are made from “cellulosic biomass” -- i.e. bits of plants that aren’t useful for food or animal feed -- and the lab hopes their development will create a new energy industry in the United States.
