Greener Plastics Research Projects

The plastics, resins and compounds industries are important sectors in the Massachusetts economy. Products produced from these industries are found throughout the global economy.TURI promotes research into formulations for these products that do not include toxic chemicals. The reports and articles in this section demonstrate the caliber and value to Massachusetts companies of the research TURI has supported. 

Recent examples include:

UML and TURI speak about non-halogenated flame retardent research
What we're really excited about is the fact that we can replicate this concept to other polymer additives and previous toxic materials using green chemistry principles and sustainable methods.
