Research Focus & Anticipated Benefits

The Center for Sustainable Polymers (CSP) focuses on sustainability issues surrounding the science and technology of polymeric materials. Members of the center concentrate their research efforts on harnessing the renewable, functional, degradable and non-toxic ingredients provided by Nature for tomorrow’s advanced plastics, foams, adhesives, elastomers, coatings and other macromolecular materials. To foster innovation, the Center partners with numerous companies that develop, implement, advance technologies in the sustainable polymer industry. In addition to the research mission of the CSP, members also foster outreach activities to educate future scientists and the public about the science and technology of sustainability.
