Processing Optimization

Processing Optimization (Dr. Cornish)

We have built two pilot plants in our off-site facility, the larger one funded by ODOD to extract inulin and rubber from Kazak dandelion and the other for latex extraction.   The pilot plants can be used with multiple materials.  In a collaborative project, we are developing hybrid processes and determining the most cost-effective way to produce Ohio rubber.
