James D. Idol, Director

The Center for Packaging Science and Engineering consists of a research division with four laboratories and an information center for packaging and related fields. The major research thrusts of the center are in packaging science and technologies, covering food and beverage packaging; pharmaceutical, medical, and health care packaging; industrial hard and soft goods packaging; and materials science related to packaging processes and products. The Distribution Packaging Laboratory evaluates package performance in the distribution environments. The Permeation/Leakage Laboratory studies barrier properties of packaging materials. The Materials/Package Laboratory studies mechanical, physical, and chemical properties and performance of packaging materials. The Packaging Machinery Laboratory studies packaging machinery design, operation, and interactions of packaging machinery and materials.
