About the Pilot Hub & Spoke Program with ORNL and the University of Maine
The sustainable biocomposite manufacturing research program will enable high stream utilization of forest products & cellulose fibrils to develop renewable, low cost, energy-efficient biofeedstocks for large-scale additive manufacturing and other composite applications.
The Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) at ORNL and the University of Maine (UMaine) are collaborating with industrial partners to scale-up R&D in biocomposites and high throughput manufacturing using a Hub and Spoke Model. This model enables industrial partners to access ORNL and UMaine assets and expertise to bring new, sustainable and functional composite products to the market.
