Composites World notes UMaine partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory

In an article about advances in 3D composites printing at Oak Ridge National Laboratory Composites World noted that Oak Ridge National Laboratory partners closely with the University of Maine Advanced Structures and Composites Center on the development of cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) and applications of these materials using a variety of manufacturing processes. The article reported that in one pilot project with UMaine, two molds for seven-piece, 100-foot offshore wind blades were built on UMaine’s 60- by 22-foot 3D printer using CNF materials.
