Laboratory services include paper testing, paper grade development, pulping and bleaching studies, coating and lamination piloting and related services that support the paper and packaging industries.

We also provide compostability testing of coated paper and bioplastic materials. We perform analyses such as ion chromatography for carbohydrates, organic acids and alcohols, and our fermentation lab performs experimental trials.

WIST research includes biofuels, renewably sourced chemicals from biomass, and value-added uses of agricultural and forestry residuals from processing.

WIST is a unit within the College of Natural Resources at UW-Stevens Point.
