New Iowa State biopolymer processing facility to help research initiative
Researchers from Iowa State University are working with a number of other firms to explore the applications and uses of bioadvantaged polymers. The team at Iowa State is working with the Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites, the Iowa Soybean Association, United Soybean Board, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and 10 other companies. As well, a new biopolymer processing facility at Iowa State’s BioCentury Research Farm will allow the research teams to manufacture material for national demonstrations.
