Michigan is giving $476,000 to researchers at Michigan State University to show how bioenergy materials can be grown in nontraditional locations like vacant lots and roadsides.
The Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth announced the grant Monday.
Money for the AgriEnergy Technology Demonstration project comes from federal stimulus funds.
Department head Andy Levin says the project will test ways of growing, harvesting and processing bioenergy crops on a range of sites. It runs through February 2012.
Bioenergy materials can be used to make electricity, heat, biogas, transportation fuels and other products.
