About

This project seeks to enable a reliable and high-throughput conversion of recycled paper and paperboard products with contaminants into lightweight, high-strength FRP composites for reuse in industries such as transportation vehicles, furniture, construction, production tooling, etc. The objective of this project is to establish a smart additive manufacturing technology that can reliably produce recycled paper fibers for use in composites with uncompromised performance.
