Project Lead: Woodbridge Foam Corporation
This project intends to reduce the CO2 footprint in the production of automotive and packaging parts by sustainably commercializing the inclusion of forest-based feedstock in thermoplastics and foamed plastics. One of the targeted products is foamed articles at various densities that are molded into specific parts for cars. The inclusion of renewable content (e.g., biocarbon, etc.) will reduce the usage of petroleum-based material including carbon black in these products, which results in a significant reduction of the CO2 footprint.
This project is an eligible recipient of the 2022 Next Generation Forest-Based Biomaterials Funding Challenge.
