Carbon fiber research highlighted in CM Magazine

Fibers produced from melt spinning of lignin/PLA blends

Our research on developing low-cost carbon fibers from lignin was featured in the September-October issue of Composites Manufacturing magazine as one of “six projects conducted on three continents that could one day affect billions of people.”  Read more on page 16 of the article “Game-Changing Research“.  Our research on this topic was also featured in the Center for Crops Utilization Research Newsletter article titled “Research Team is Developing Biobased Carbon Fibers for Wind Turbine Blades.”  Congratulations to Mahendra Thunga, Keke Chen, and the rest of the team on this publicity.
