Your Support Makes Minnesota a Greener, Cleaner, Safer Place Through Innovation

The Agricultural Utilization Research Institute (AURI) is a nonprofit organization, unique to Minnesota and the upper Midwest. It provides support to the state’s farmers, entrepreneurs and small business owners in their efforts to develop innovations in a variety of areas that positively benefit Minnesota and the world at large. AURI currently operates facilities and offices in the cities of Crookston, Marshall, St. Paul and Waseca, MN.

AURI helps individuals and companies create new, value-added products and processes that make for healthier foods, better options for renewable energy, less agricultural waste and sustainable replacement options for petroleum-based products. It accomplishes this through the groundbreaking work of its innovation labs, located throughout Minnesota.

Minnesotans have developed a vast number of ideas and innovations throughout the state and your help will allow AURI to further expand its abilities and services. We are currently asking for donations to support our mission through the purchase of new, updated technology for our innovation laboratories so we can accelerate our ability to move innovative ideas to reality to benefit the Minnesota economy.

By supporting AURI, you are helping make innovative food and agricultural ideas a reality across Minnesota, providing renewable alternatives and novel products for you and your community. Please donate today.
