CSMS researcher Khwaja Hossain, Professor of Biology at Mayville State University, presented on his wheat bran fiber research at the 7th International Conference on Smart Materials and Sustainable Technologies held April 8th and 9th in Toronto, Canada.
Hossain’s research looks at the characteristics of wheat bran fiber and its potential to be a viable resource in thermoplastic biocomposites. Using wheat bran fiber in thermoplastic biocomposites offers several benefits including its being environmentally-friendly, reusable and recyclable.
Research into wheat bran fibers as a biobased alternative is just one of the materials being researched by Hossain and CSMS researcher Chad Ulven, Professer in Mechanical Engineering at North Dakota State University.
