AURI Coproduct Pilot Lab Capability Showcase (Webinar Wednesday)

Date: May 12, 2021

Time: 12 – 1 pm, CT


The Agricultural Utilization Research Institute’s (AURI) mission is to foster long-term economic benefit for Minnesota through value-added agricultural products. AURI does this by helping to develop new uses for agricultural products through science and technology as well as by partnering with businesses and entrepreneurs to bring ideas to reality. AURI has multiple facilities across the state of Minnesota that offer a broad range of services – from hands-on technical assistance to research services and a targeted network of resources.

Join us on May 12th to hear from AURI team members in Waseca, MN as they highlight their lab capabilities which support renewable energy, coproduct, biobased and food projects. This virtual event will showcase new resource additions to the AURI Waseca pilot lab such as a Food Grade processing area, hemp fiber decorticator, new drying and dewatering capabilities, densification equipment and more. Listeners will gain an understanding of the expertise and capabilities the Waseca lab houses, which can aid businesses with process and product development.

AURI Connects: Webinar Wednesday is a monthly webinar series hosted by the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute. Each webinar explores different aspects of the food and ag sectors in Minnesota—from resources for food entrepreneurs to innovations in coproducts and biobased energy.
