The BCRF had another year of diverse users. Iowa State University (ISU) faculty and staff from the Departments of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE); Agronomy; Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE); Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE); Mechanical Engineering (ME); and Food Science and Human Nutrition (FSHN), as well as the Bioeconomy Institute (BEI), Center for Crops Utilization Research (CCUR), College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), and Extension and Outreach conducted research, teaching, and outreach at the BCRF. Private industry users included ARGO, Chevron, Deere and Company, DuPont Cellulosic Ethanol, and many others. By the end of 2018, the BCRF had more than 80 full- and part-time users with projects in all available spaces. The BCRF separated from CCUR July 1 to become an independent unit under the CALS administrative umbrella with Matt Darr as the administrative leader.
