National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center
The National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center at SIUE is a nationally-recognized research center dedicated to the development of biorenewables: biofuels, biochemical, biomaterials, and bioproducts. Since 2003, NCERC has been the only facility in the world at which corn ethanol, cellulosic ethanol, advanced biofuels, and specialty chemical research is conducted simultaneously.
Groups can schedule a free guided tour of the plant to learn how NCERC bridges the gap between traditional research and commercial application. The guided tour will feature the 24,00 square foot pilot plant, the fermentation suite, the analytical and fermentation labs, and more.
