UMass Lowell polymer science graduate student Sethumadhavan Ravichandran explains how he and his interdisciplinary team--chemical engineering graduate student Ryan Bouldin, physics Prof. Jayant Kumar, and plastics engineering Prof. Ram Nagarajan--won the EPA's People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) top honor award. The team designed and developed a novel, safer and "greener" flame retardant material using a renewable waste product obtained during cashew nut processing. This approach can replace toxic compounds that are currently used as flame retardants and have a profound impact on lives of fire fighters and soldiers in combat, and others. The team received seed funding from Mass. Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI), UMass Lowell Office of Commercial Ventures & Intellectual Property (CVIP) and the U.S Army.
