Centre for Biocomposites & Biomaterials Processing (CBBP)
Based at the University of Toronto, the Centre for Biocomposites & Biomaterials Processing (CBBP) encourages sustainable growth by developing circular economy methods, reduces the impact of industrial processes on the environment, and combats climate change by reducing carbon emissions. CBBP is working on the development of next generation energy efficient lightweight performance nanomaterials for industrial applications including aerospace, automotive, bio-medical and electronics.
Equipped with state-art processing equipment and analytical instruments, CBBP actively works with researchers and industry partners in developing advanced bio-composite material, prototyping, and evaluating the performance of product. Research conducted at the CBBP emphasizes the importance of Canada’s natural resource industry and manufacturing to create processes and products that are cutting-edge, energy-efficient, and eco-friendly.
