ADM celebrated the grand opening of the new ADM Science and Technology Center at the University of Illinois Research Park. The facility quadruples ADM’s footprint at the University of Illinois Research Park and reflects a significant expansion of its capabilities.

In addition to its focus on process and financial modeling as well as business intelligence and business development, the new center’s portfolio will allow the addition of human nutrition research and development, wet chemistry, sensory science, data science, computational fluid dynamics, and customer interface and applications.

The ADM Science and Technology Center will create opportunities for students across campus including chemical engineering, chemistry, information science, computer science, food science and human nutrition, technology management, agricultural and consumer economics, animal science and business programs, just to name a few.

ADM originally opened at Research Park in 2007. Then known as the Bioenergy Modeling Center, it focused on computational work, conceptual engineering, and modeling to evaluate the feasibility of manufacturing specialty chemicals.
