EPA Grant Number: SU834736
Title: Adding Glycerine to Eco-Friendly Golf Tees to Accelerate Biodegradability and Improve Fabricatio

A team of students at Northern Illinois University will produce a more durable and biodegradable golf tee from the byproducts of the bio-fuel and bio-diesel production processes. The students will design and produce a golf tee that replaces the lumber used in the production process with materials that are more durable and in abundance. This will reduce deforestation and increase CO2 sequestration.

Challenge Area(s): Materials and Chemicals, Agriculture
