CCCC's focus on sustainable fuel production is at the heart of the program, offering students the opportunity to learn responsible and sustainable fuel production practices.
Fall 2008 CCCC began offering an associate degree in Alternative Energy Technology: Biofuels. This program is designed to equip students with the skills needed for a career in the growing biofuels industry.

The plant will be designed to produce fuel in a variety of ways to suit training needs. The production facility will also include a oilseed crushing facility and side stream management equipment. The fuel produced in the lab will be used to run college vehicles and equipment.
