The Institute for Food & Bioresource Engineering (IFBE) was established in January 2011 by the PKU College of Engineering. The main scope of research activities of the IFBE is to exploit plant and microbial resources for food and energy with an emphasis on microalgae because it is a rich but largely untapped resource. The target products will include biofuels (mainly biodiesel) and functional foods (mainly functional ingredients). There are laboratories located on the Peking University main campus and a pilot plant located on the Chang Ping campus.
