LAWRENCE, KAS. — Archer Daniels Midland Co. has established a research center in Lawrence as part of a chemical biorefining relationship with the University of Kansas. The Decatur, Ill.-based company has leased space at the Bioscience and Technology Business Center Expansion Facility as part of the initiative related to biorefining — converting agricultural materials into chemicals for consumer products, including packaging, cosmetics and household cleaners. ADM and the K.U. Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis have an eight-year relationship that included a $5.6 million federal grant in 2011 for collaborative work on chemical biorefining. ADM has contributed an additional $2.6 million in recent years to the effort.
