The Center for Plastics Innovation (CPI), led by Professors LaShanda Korley and Thomas H. Epps, III, will focus on chemically transforming plastic waste into fuels, lubricants and other valuable products in an energy-efficient manner. It is one of six new Energy Frontier Research Centers established across the U.S. and the second to be directed by the University of Delaware.


A new center at the University of Delaware will advance research to transform the way materials are made. The UD Center for Hybrid, Active, and Responsive Materials (UD CHARM) will drive fundamental materials science research with the potential to enable critical innovations in biomedicine, security, sensing and more.

NIIMBL grants will accelerate COVID-19 response
