Subscribe to 1140 KSOO-AM on

South Dakota State University in Brookings recently received $2.3 million from the United States Agriculture Department to continue its leadership of the Sun Grant Program.

SDSU Vice President for Research and Economic Development Kevin Kephart says the focus of the program has largely been celullosic biofuels.

“Cellulosic ethonal or cellulosic advanced fuels. It also includes oil seeds, and algae. Many other food stocks that are of interest as well.  And its not all fuels either. The focus… the intent from the beginning has been on bio-based products whether is lubricants or plastics or what have you, but based on agricultural food stocks.”

Kephart says Sun Grant research project was designing processes that can come up with biofuels other than ethonal.
