A deep papermaking lab is the type of lab used to make medical grade medical grade paper, and the U.S. government is investing in it.
The Washington Post reports that the federal government is providing about $2 million to build the lab and its associated facilities in Iowa.
“Our goal is to use these facilities to support research and development in papermaking and medical devices,” said Joseph Dannenfelser, president of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
“And we’re looking at a lot of different things for this lab.”
The National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense are funding the development of the lab.
A deep-sea research vessel has been named the Discovery Research Vessel, which was built by a private company, S&P Engineering and Technology, or Siemens.
The Deep-Sea Research Vessel was commissioned in 2011.
The lab will be equipped with high-speed, high-power digital technology to make high-strength medical-grade medical-like papers and medical-type surgical instruments, and will be able to produce medical-strength papers for medical imaging and imaging applications.
In addition, the lab will offer a variety of tools to make and test medical-level medical-quality paper for medical devices.
The papermaking company is currently building the lab at its facility in La Jolla, California.
The state of Iowa is also planning to get involved in the project.
