PETROSS helped transform sugarcane and sweet sorghum to naturally produce large amounts of bio-oil, a sustainable source of biofuel. This work is continuing through Renewable Oil Generated with Ultra-productive Energycane, or ROGUE.
Engineer PETROSS crops to produce bio-oil that can be converted into biodiesel or jet fuel.
Engineer PETROSS crops to photosynthesize more efficiently to boost biomass yields.
Produce cold tolerant PETROSS crops to substantially increase the growing region.
