The mission will be accomplished through:

  • Conducting basic and applied research of novel technologies for sustainable and responsible next generation fuels and bio-based products;

  • Engaging students in research opportunities to generate highly qualified Montana scientists and professionals;

  • Providing fuel and engine performance testing, including emissions analysis, to private businesses, academic institutions, and government agencies; and

  • Engaging with private industry in developing and demonstrating new technologies in next generation fuels, bio-based products, and engine exhaust treatment devices.
