Industrial hemp testing, analysis and research
WIST is licensed under the state of Wisconsin's Industrial Hemp Program to perform research on industrial hemp. The institute's extensive experience and capabilities in fiber processing and evaluation are perfectly suited to serve the increased interest in uses for industrial hemp.

WIST laboratories serve a wide variety of needs, as highlighted in this excerpt from 2019 Annual Report:
As with the digester study, much of the [2019 laboratory services] work was assistance in product development, whether for large multinational corporations or solo entrepreneurs. Among the dozens of contracted services over the past year, for example, WIST provided coating test runs on the university’s pilot coating and laminating line, worked with an entrepreneur exploring uses for industrial hemp (WIST in 2018 became one of the first laboratories licensed by Wisconsin for research on industrial hemp), tested cat litter made from recycled paper, helped a company recreate a legacy paper, and worked with a company developing a filter pad.
