Title of Internship Talk
Hemp-based, Sustainable, Compostable, and Affordable Menstrual Pads for Underserved Communities
Oregon State University, College of Engineering
Materials (Polymer) Research in Chemical, Biological, & Environmental Engineering
Over the summer, I worked in a chemical engineering lab at OSU. We looked at different menstrual hygiene pads currently on the market and compared them in terms of compostability and absorbency. Additionally, we looked at the absorbency ratio of hemp compared to cotton. Further studies will be done on the properties of hemp.
