NMA Lunchtime Seminar: Focus on Bioresins

 

You are invited to join us for our monthly virtual event where we will be focusing on resin. This event will explore the how a variety of natural materials from bio-adhesives to films and composites provide us with sustainable solutions to a range of academic and industrial problems.

You will hear from:

  • Xiaobin Zhao, Founder, Director and CEO, Cambond Ltd will give a talk entitled ‘For Academic Curiosity to Golden Opportunities’
  • Samy A. Madbouly, Assistant Professor of Engineering, Plastics Engineering Technology and Polymer Engineering and Science programs, Penn State Behrend will talk about multifunctional polyurethane- lignin aqueous dispersions and shape-memory films
