Center for Biogenic Natural Gas Research

The Center for Biogenic Natural Gas Research exists to explore and develop the production of renewable, clean-burning natural gas using indigenous microorganisms.

This School of Energy Resources Center of Excellence is focused on using naturally occurring processes to create clean, renewable energy from Wyoming's abundant coal to help solve the critical energy challenges that we face.
