U of G’s Bioproducts Discovery and Development Centre (BDDC) was featured in a November Science article about new research in composite materials.

Included in the article was a paper about composites from renewable and sustainable resources written by U of G professors Amar Mohanty, Department of Plant Agriculture, and Manjusri Misra, Department of Engineering, along with colleagues Singaravelu Vivekanandhan and Jean-Mathieu Pin.

The BDDC is an interdisciplinary centre at U of G where plant biologists, chemists, and engineers investigate and commercialize biomaterials to develop greener bioproducts as substitutes for non-renewable materials in many sectors.
