Green Materials Laboratory


The Green Materials Laboratory started as a research group under the Polymers and Catalysis Laboratory, which was created in 2011. This laboratory aims to conduct research focused on (1) producing novel bio-based, environment-friendly polymeric materials and/or (2) developing greener methods of producing and treating polymeric materials.

The Laboratory has three main researchtopics:

  1. Green composites
  2. Bio-based polymers
  3. Greener materials processing

However, the laboratory also engages in other related research topics in polymer and polymeric composite materials.
