Herty Advanced Materials Development Center Celebrates 75th Anniversary
Did you know that the Herty Advanced Materials Development Center was established in 1938? 2013 – 1938 = 75 years of operation and innovation. They recently celebrated this milestone anniversary with a visit from Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. If you’re interested in developing synthetic nonwoven materials, ‘green’ technologies, biomass processing or alternative energies, then the Center would probably be happy to talk to you as those are areas that they are currently focusing on. On a side note, the Center is actually named after Dr. Charles H. Herty and he had quite a career as one of the early pioneers in wood chemistry.
