Submit seed concepts to the proposed new site at North Dakota State University.
CB2 has announced a call for research proposals for funding. Each thrust area is listed below. This includes vegetable oil-based, biobased waxes, mononers, elastomers, poly ester-amidesand sustainable approaches to advanced functional materials and polymer additives and feedstock production.
These areas include self-healing composites, fiber production from lignin, nano-technologies as well as biobased composites. This will include melt processing, extrusion, and molding as well as secondary operations such as cutting, welding and coating.
Commercialization includes, but is not limited to, composting, product labeling and economic analysis. Part of the center's already existing system is an interactive life cycle assessment web-based software that allows users to easily analyze their current and future products.

Because the Center offers member companies royalty-free access to intellectual property resulting from Center projects, the Center is well positioned for direct technology transfer from academia to industry.
The Center supports the development of SBIR proposals and business plans, facilitates networking, identifies markets and potential market penetration.
This allows member companies to leverage their resources and increase their profits.be developed for production, usage and bioplastic waste management for every country in the world. Key words: Advantages of bioplastics, bioplastics, disadvantages of bioplastics, standards, sustainability.
The research study was concerned with utilizing coconut husk fibers or cocus nucifera and water hyacinth in producing a bioplastic product. The research focused not only on the simple production but also the quality of the said product in terms of brittleness and flexibility.
Bioplastics from Starch. Uploaded by. In this paper we review starch as a source for producing bioplastics. We discuss how to generate bioplastic The glass transition temperature (Tg) of dried starch is about films from different starches, Role of plasticizers (especially °C [40,41]more than thermal degradation point (°C) glycerol.
The paper reviews the recent developments in bioplastic food packaging. Several bioplastic materials (polylactide, polyhydroxyalkanoates, and starch) have been successfully converted into food packaging using conventional plastic conversion technologies including extrusion, injection molding, and compression molding.
CB 2 will focus on five research thrust areas that will promote industry-wide acceptance of bioplastics and increase the use of sustainable materials. Each thrust area is listed below.
SYNTHESIS AND COMPOUNDING. This thrust area will develop fundamental understanding of bioplastic synthesis and compounding, including fermentation and polymerization. A bioplastic is developed from seaweed proving to be one of the most environmentally friendly bioplastics based on research published in the journal of pharmacy research.
