Nov. 13 Bio-Fiber Development Laboratory open house

08 Nov 2013    

The Department of Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design (TMFD) invites the campus community to an open house to showcase its new Bio-Fiber Development Laboratory, located on East Campus immediately west of Ag Hall, near the Holdrege St. entrance to east campus loop. A light lunch buffet will be served. Members of Yiqi Yang's research team will be on hand to welcome visitors and to answer questions.

The Bio-Fiber Development Laboratory exists to advance research into the uses of abundant and inexpensive lignocellulosic agricultural crop residues for textiles, composites, filters and other high-value-added products. Production of testable quantities of bio-fibers will allow the textile science team to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a multitude of high value products from renewable raw material resources generated by the state's agricultural systems.
