Information about the Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (CB2)
The Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (CB2) develops high-value biobased products from agricultural and forestry feedstocks. CB2’s vision is to develop the knowledge that will allow the production of an array of high-value materials from agricultural feedstocks that are compatible with current industrial manufacturing systems, thereby promoting rural development. Such materials include plastics, coatings, adhesives, and composites.
CB2’s goals are to:
- Improve the basic understanding of the synthesis, processing, properties, and compounding of bioplastic and biocomposite materials.
- Develop reliable material characteristics data for industrial partners.
