Entrepreneur Nadir Yildirim, Ph.D., will talk about the potential of microscopic wood fibers called nanocelluloses to transform Maine’s forest products industry in a March 6 MDI Science Café entitled “Nanotechnology and the Futurist Green Material, Nanocellulose.”
Yildirim is the co-founder and president of Revolution Research, an Orono, Maine-based research and development startup that is creating 21st century products from nanocellulose in the form of eco-friendly wood-based ceiling tiles and insulation.
Yildirim says his company is addressing one of the world’s central issues — the environmental, economic and political impacts of energy production — by developing building products that are efficient, ecofriendly and renewable.
