ASCC and ORNL SM2ART collaboration featured in Plastics Technology for Sustainable Solutions for Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials

The SM2ART program collaboration1 between the University of Maine Advanced Structures & Composites Center (ASCC) and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has been featured on the Plastics Technology website for its work in sustainable solutions for fiber-reinforced composite materials. 

“Fiber-reinforced composites have revolutionized a variety of application spaces. In many cases, they are not only a more efficient material — they are required,” says Dr. Matthew Korey, an R&D associate staff member at the Department of Energy’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) at ORNL,” (Plastics Technology).
