Dean Webster, Professor and Chair of the Coatings and Polymeric Materials department at NDSU, and our CSMS co-lead, has been named site-director for a new biobased materials research center to be set up at NDSU.


The new center will be a university site of the Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (CB²), a National Science Foundation Industry & University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) focusing on developing high-value biobased products from agricultural and forestry feedstocks.

In addition to biobased research, the new center will include educational programs for undergraduate and graduate students, veterans and other instructors.
