UMM to offer gasification curriculum

The University of Minnesota, Morris, received an $85,000 grant from the Minnesota Renewable Energy Marketplace–Alliance for Talent Development initiative to deliver and expand biomass gasification curriculum.

The university will offer an intensive three-week course on campus this month, it said. Participants will include four-year students from Morris, two-year students from Minnesota West Community and Technical College and Alexandria Technical College, undergraduate students from other institutions, and working adults seeking training and employment in biomass gasification. The curriculum is offered through a partnership with several institutions and organizations.

MNREM is one of 39 regional projects funded through the U.S. Department of Labor Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development Initiative.
