Sycamore native to present at conference

Nicholas Anderson, a native of Sycamore, is one of four University of Wisconsin-Platteville students who will present their research papers this week at the American National Technical Exhibition and Conference in Cincinnati.

ANTEC is the largest scientific conference with representatives from industries and universities around the world.

Anderson is a senior manufacturing technology management major. He and his team will present their paper on the use of lignin as an environmentally friendly additive and colorant in polypropylene materials.

The project was first presented to Tabrizi by the American Science and Technology foundation. Anderson worked on the project as part of his Extrusion Technology course.

They continued their work through the UW-Platteville Center for Plastics Processing Technology Lab. AST is currently seeking a patent for the technology.

They submitted a proposal of their work to the ANTEC review board and were selected to present at the conference.
