The Forest Products Development Center (FPDC) is the hub for economic development and relevant industrial research for the state. Based on industry demand, we have also created a new undergraduate curriculum in the area of Sustainable Biomaterials and Packaging. The 21st Century will consist of new products such as Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), plant based adhesives for a better carbon footprint, and nanotechnology to improve materials all around us. We are poised to be the go-to place for new biobased materials and believe in diversity, respect, and multidisciplinary team work.
