Paul Fowler


Paul has over 20 years of experience in contract research and the development of new products and opportunities from bio-based materials. With a keen focus on commercialization potential, Paul explores new applications of underutilized natural resources to add value to current industrial processes along with the possibility to implement new disruptive technologies. Core competencies support two major themes: value-added applications in Wisconsin’s potato and vegetable processing sector and activities to support Wisconsin’s pulp and paper sector. Paul speaks regularly at conferences addressing matters of sustainability, paper-based packaging, bio-based plastics, and compostability
