DuPont, Wilmington, Del., and the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) announced a joint research agreement leading toward the development of the world's first integrated "bio-refinery" that uses corn or other renewable resources--rather than traditional petrochemicals--to produce a host of valuable fuels and value-added chemicals.

The $7.7 million Cooperative Research and Development Agreement calls for DuPont and the NREL to collaboratively develop, build, and test a bio-refinery pilot process that will make fuels and chemicals from the entire corn plant--including the fibrous material in the stalks, husks, leaves, and the starchy material in the kernels.
