Dec. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- A new hybrid process involving the integration of electrospinning with twin screw extrusion was developed at the Highly Filled Materials Institute at Stevens. The Institute is located in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA. The process has the following advantages versus conventional electrospinning:
