Michigan State University (MSU), as a top global university, pushes the boundaries of discovery to make a better world while providing students with life-changing opportunities. The Anaerobic Digestion Research and Education Center (ADREC) at MSU is located on the southern MSU campus with a full range of research and development capacities from lab scale and pilot scale all the way to commercial scale. The mission of MSU ADREC is to provide a platform for multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, and multi-national collaborations that develop sustainable waste-to-resource solutions to address current and future waste utilization challenges. The research and development activities in the center are focusing on developing the technologies that are able to economically address waste utilization needs of our global community. The specific objectives are to: 1) develop novel waste-to-resource technologies capable to convert organic wastes into value-added products, 2) fulfill commercialization and technology transfer of new waste-to-resource concepts, and 3) educate the next generation of engineers, scientists and policymakers on waste utilization design and practice.
