An Investment That Yields Results

CARD membership provides industry participants unprecedented access to university talent, industry research, and an extensive range of valuable resources, to name just a few benefits. For an annual membership fee of $50,000, participating organizations become part of a highly collaborative, industry-focused center that delivers solutions to “grand” challenges.

Long term, the benefits of new drying technologies—including lowering energy costs and easier/better control over product quality – give U.S. manufacturers a stronger competitive edge in a global economy. Member participants gain the added visibility and recognition for demonstrating leadership in addressing major environmental issues.
