Texas A&M system agencies join forces to hasten bioenergy revolution

The Texas A&M University System has the scientific expertise in engineering and agriculture to become a national leader in the development of clean, renewable bioenergy when cars run on some refined form of grease, garbage or grain or scores of other plant and animal products.

Today, the System's two premier research agencies in agriculture and engineering--the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station and the Texas Engineering Experiment Station--joined forces to hasten the bioenergy revolution, forming the Texas A&M Agriculture and Engineering BioEnergy Alliance.

"Bioenergy is emerging as an important part of the energy solution, with economic, environmental and social impact," said John D.White, chairman of the A&M System Board of Regents. The Texas A&M University System is uniquely situated to work with existing industries and infrastructure, combined with emerging ideas and technologies, to create a reliable and complementary range of products to help the people of Texas and beyond. With the scientific expertise we have in both agencies, we are making this a top research priority."

"What we have going for us in the Texas A&M System are the agricultural scientists who are developing the drought-tolerant crops for a sustainable supply of biomass," White continued, "and we have the engineers who are working on the technologies and the engine designs that can maximize the effectiveness of bioenergy fuels. We also think our highly productive agriculture industry can become a major source of renewable energy," he said, pointing out that Texas already produces large volumes of crop and animal residues that could be prime sources of these fuels.

This Texas A&M Agriculture and Engineering BioEnergy Alliance was formally recognized during a ceremonial signing of a memorandum of agreement by White and A&M System Chancellor Robert D. McTeer following the A&M System Board of Regents meeting on Friday (July 28).
