Packaging to Polymers

Sustainable Biomaterials majors work to create solutions to key issues in global ecology, from pollution to climate change. We research sustainable, renewable biomaterials and biopolymers to reduce adverse environmental impacts across industries. Our packaging major focuses on ways to positively affect the entire supply chain and its environmental impact, because every resource that is moved for industry or commerce is packaged.
