Fossil Fuel Bioprocessing

In this program, scientists are using biology to develop ways of reaching oil and coal that expend less energy and release fewer greenhouse gases. For instance, biological processes might be used to coax oil from below ground or to alter the semi-porous rock that holds oil, making it flow to the surface. Making it easier to access hard-to-reach domestic oil reserves will help ensure that oil remains part of a diverse mix of energy choices.

Principal Investigators

Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PIs) share the responsibilities for the goals and objectives of their research project. Together, they manage the scientific, fiscal and administrative aspects that encompass the work, including the efforts of collaborators or other participants.
