A new laboratory that will transform ag and forestry materials into feed ingredients and other bioproducts is now open in the Research Park at South Dakota State University.

SDSU President Barry Dunn says the scientists that work at the POET Bioproducts Center will apply for local, state or federal grants to develop a process that works in a lab to transform raw materials into something else.

The 45,000 square foot facility was funded by the state legislature, POET, South Dakota Corn and South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.

DaNita Murray with South Dakota Corn tells Brownfield there’s a strong interest from the state’s corn growers to ensure that the pipeline is open to develop new products.
