|A Major League Epidemic:|
Researchers at the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) have been studying bat breakage for nearly a decade. Research materials engineer John Considine recently stopped by Madison’s WORT FM’s 8 O’Clock Buzz to discuss the project’s progress and how scientists have worked to make wooden bats safe...
|2015 Director's Awards Presented|
Michael T. Rains, Director of the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) and Northern Research Station (NRS), today presented the 2015 Director’s Awards to 10 exceptional employees furthering scientific advancement at the two research facilities. Rains praised the honorees for their impacts and contribu...
|Advances in Microfibrillated Cellulose Films|
MFC (microfibrillated cellulose) has recently become a major area of research, as it offers promising advantages as a reinforcement in composites materials. It has the potential for replacing synthetic fibers in applications where post-use biodegradability is beneficial. This material is extracted f...
|A Winning Paper...on Paper|
A journal article authored by Forest Products Laboratory researchers David Vahey (retired) and John Considine has been selected as the TAPPI Journal Best Research Paper for 2013...
|Recyclable, Compostable Stamps That Last “Forever”|
Do you remember the last time you licked a stamp? Maybe not, and for good reason: 20 years have passed since the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) first started transitioning from “lickable” stamps to the peel-and-stick squares we use today, called “pressure-sensitive adhesive” stamps by those in t...
