|Grewell to lead new Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposities (CB2)
The Iowa Board of Regents approved the National Science Foundation Industry & University Cooperative Research Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites.
The center’s research will develop knowledge about the production of an array of high-value products, including plastics, coatings, adhesives and composites, from agricultural and forestry feedstocks. A partnership among universities, industry and government, the Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites or CB2 will be led by Iowa State and funded through industry and NSF support.
David Grewell, professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering and director of the Biopolymers and Biocomposites Research Team at Iowa State, is the center’s director.
“The center’s research will cover the complex and diverse aspects of establishing and promoting the use of renewable materials including feedstock logistics, material synthesis and compounding, product design and customer acceptance, life cycle assessment, and end-of-life treatment,” said Grewell.
