Bioproducts Discovery and Development Centre (BDDC)

Located at the University of Guelph, the Bioproducts Discovery and Development Centre (BDDC) is an interdisciplinary centre where plant biologists, chemists, and engineers converge to investigate and commercialize biomaterials. The BDDC conducts leading edge research to develop greener bioproducts to substitute non-renewable materials in many manufacturing sectors (including automotive), consumer goods and services.

The BDDC is available to companies, entrepreneurs and research organizations as a partner and collaborator in biomaterials projects and products. Moreover, it welcomes the opportunity to work collaboratively with industry in its efforts to commercialize new biomaterials, biochemicals and process technologies. Its team of researchers and technicians make the BDDC a highly productive and effective partner for companies wishing to explore new bio-based plastics and green composites to collaborate and enhance their product portfolio.
