The News-Gazette documented the construction progress of the CABBI greenhouse, which is expected to be finished by May 1, 2024. The building is located in the Research Park neighborhood at 1902 S. Fourth Street, next to the RIPE (Realizing Increased Photosynthetic Efficiency) Facility.

The Center for Advanced Bioenergy and Bioproducts Innovation (CABBI) is a $252.5M U.S. Department of Energy-funded Bioenergy Research Center. Its mission is to “develop efficient ways to grow bioenergy crops, transform biomass into valuable chemicals, and market the resulting biofuels and other bioproducts.” The new greenhouse will create research and teaching opportunities, featuring a solar panel array, plant phenotyping facility, walk-in growth chambers, and more.
