STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — Can you imagine pumping renewable gasoline or diesel fuel into your car? That's the plan at Mississippi State University where the Sustainable Energy Research Center opened its doors to the public Thursday.

The first ever National Bioenergy Day attracted people from all walks of life.

Organizers say many are fascinated with technology which enables the conversion of biomass, such as wood, into transportation fuels.

MSU scientists are taking their research to the next level — to consumers.

"We'll never replace gas. We'll never replace diesel, but we can definitely be a good supplement and generate a good fraction of the total fuel needs of the U.S," Sustainable Energy Research Center Director Glenn Steele said.
