3D Printed Composite Materials Developed from Forestry Waste Used in Affordable Rural Housing

Affordable housing is needed in rural communities, and a team of researchers from Auburn University, in partnership with researchers from the University of Idaho, are developing an innovative solution to the problem by using forestry waste to create composite materials able to be additively manufactured into strong, reliable building components. The bio-resin development as the feedstock for the 3D printing will be the focus of the team from Auburn, and University of Idaho group will manage the printing. The project is being funded by the National Science Foundation’s Research Infrastructure Improvement Program.
