Universities and Educational Institutions
As a part of the University of Maine Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, the Process Development Center has the privilege of collaborating with many of the country’s finest universities, colleges and educational institutions. By sharing our knowledge and pooling our resources with some of our most accomplished peers, we are able to make even greater strides in the field of chemical engineering.
The nanocellulose research program at UMaine is part of a research consortium led by the Forest Products Laboratory. The consortium includes six other universities — Georgia Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, Oregon State University, Pennsylvania State University, Purdue University and University of Tennessee. Consortium members are working together to develop scalable methods to convert wood components into novel, high-performance nanomaterials. Their work is also being directed at improving methods to isolate, characterize, and develop standards for the various forms of nanocellulose.
