CAMX 2018 “Best in Track: Green & Sustainability” Outstanding Technical Paper Award

Researchers and IACMI interns at the Fibers and Composites Manufacturing Facility (FCMF) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville drive industry-leading research to learn more about the decomposition of composites created through various manufacturing methods.

A related project by the group was recognized with the CAMX 2018 “Best in Track: Green & Sustainability” Outstanding Technical Paper Award.
