During the summer, Matt Baker (Ph.D) and Marlon Levy-Faigen (Junior) have been tackling one of the biggest challenges in the packaging industry. They have been investigating how the compression strength of corrugated boxes change depending on the content of the box. The research will help us design more efficient corrugated boxes and improve the sustainability of the overall industry. Mr. Baker and Mr. Levy-Faigen presented their finding in the 2015 summer undergraduate research symposium at Virginia tech.
