HQP presented their work at the Society of Plastics Engineer's (SPE) Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE) on September 7-9, 2022 in Novi, MI, USA.
The conference theme was “Composites: The Key to Electriv Vehicles - Mobility and Sustainability" and included three days of presentations and posters highlighting how the automotive and transportation industries are advancing with composited playing a key role in the development of electric vehicles and sustainability initiatives worldwide.
Presenting authors included:
Kaitlyn Root -1st place undergraduate poster - "Poly (butylene succinate-co-butylene adipate) based biodegradable composites for sustainable automotive packaging"
Victoria Muir - 2nd place undergraduate poster - "Ocean recycled nylon and lignin biocarbon-based sustainable biocomposites for auto-parts uses"
Kiara Mohr - 3rd place undergraduate poster - "Cork waste in sustainable composites uses: Performance comparison between biodegradable composites and polypropylene-based composites"
