Without collaborators, there would be no "coalition." These organizations make the pursuit of clean fuel, advanced steam, and railroad preservation a reality.


We enjoy a collaborative relationship with the University of Minnesota Natural Resources Research Institute (NRRI) and the Institute on the Environment (IonE). The mission of NRRI is to foster the  economic development of Minnesota’s natural resources in an environmentally sound manner to promote private sector employment. IonE is dedicated to promoting statewide economic development; sustainable, healthy diverse ecosystems; and national energy security through the development of bio-based and other renewable resource processes.  In its collaboration with CSR, both will work concurrently to finalize the development of practical torrefied biomass and the energy systems engineered to combust it efficiently.
