Clemson University spin-off uses corn to make plastics, provide cleaner air

ght. The company plans to staff 20 full-time employees over the next five years. In addition to possible jobs for Clemson's engineering graduates, Tetramer will expand to employ technicians trained by local technical institutes.

Wagener, a 1967 Clemson graduate in physical organic chemistry, returned to South Carolina to head the company. Wagener has 36 years of new product commercialization and venture capital experience at Dow Chemical, Stepan Co. and The ChemQuest Group Inc.

Tetramer was formed in February 2001 by professors in Clemson's Center for Optical Materials Science and Engineering Technologies. COMSET is the only university research and development lab in the region focused on the development of new optical materials. Their research attracted more than $13 million in sponsored research during the center's first three years.

COMSET recently was designated a state center by the S.C. Commission on Higher Education and granted $5 million in matching funds for an endowed faculty member. The faculty position is a cornerstone of Clemson's plan to invest $70 million over the next five years at the Clemson Research Park to make the Upstate a magnet for the advanced materials industry cluster. A $21 million advanced materials research laboratory is near completion at the research park.
