Industrial Affiliates Program

The CPI program brings together an interdisciplinary team of researchers to address the complex problem of transforming mixed plastics waste into targeted products and designing materials for circularity.  This approach provides opportunities for research that would not be possible with a single laboratory or even single research institution.  Our researchers consist of experts in polymers, catalysis, enzyme engineering, and data science and combine both experimental and computational approaches.

The industrial affiliate program seeks to expand the impact of CPI research by creating a dialogue with companies in the sustainability workstream to communicate research initiatives/results and receive input into industrial relevance as well as a means to spawn collaborative industry-academic research program and initiate research projects more geared toward industry partner needs.
