    Deana Namuth-Covert dcovert2@unl.edu
    Welcome to the CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network! This space is designed for learning and collaboration. Feel free to browse the reference materials located within the community.  If you would like to view current discussion topics and collaborate with other community members, you'll need to create an account.  Here are instructions to create an account. If you are visiting the community page to attend a webinar, here are instructions on how to use the Adobe Connect meeting room. The CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network is currently funded in part by a USDA/National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant. It is a collaboration among the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary, eXtension, university and college educators/students, and researchers. Partners from over 9 states, USDA and 7 universities are members. We launched the fall of 2011.  Please take a look around and we hope you find the materials, webinars, classes and interactions with colleagues in this environment to be rewarding. Together we can meet the fuel needs of a growing population, in the midst of climate challenges. We hope you become a frequent visitor of this site to share with us the experiences of this exciting project.

  • CenUSA Education Material
    Deana Namuth-Covert
    What is the CenUSA Bioenergy Project? The CenUSA Bioenergy project is funded by the USDA and includes faculty and staff from 8 institutions working together to investigate perennial grasses as a feedstock for biofuels and the creation of a regional sustainable biofuels system in the Midwest. CenUSA Bioenergy Vision Our vision is to create a regional system for producing advanced transportation fuels derivedfrom perennial grasses grown on land that is either unsuitable or marginal for row crop production.  In addition to producing advanced biofuels, the proposed system will improve the sustainability of existing cropping systems by reducing agricultural runoff of nutrients and soil and increasing carbon sequestration. To learn more about the CenUSA project, please visit the CenUSA home page at http://www.cenusa.iastate.edu/ To view the educational materials we have created thus far, click on the "lessons" tab above.  Find additional quizzes by clicking on the "CenUSA Education" link under the self-paced course heading.  The left hand tabs will take you to more detailed descriptions of the CenUSA project objectives.                                                                  The CenUSA Bioenergy project is supported by Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant no. 2011-68005-30411 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
