Scientist Profile: Eco-Friendly Materials Scientist

Anil Netravali is a materials scientist who cares about the environment. He engineers earth-friendly building materials, called "composites," using parts from plants and trees. Recently, he developed a "green" skateboard that is now made and sold by Comet Skateboards. The skateboards work just as well as regular ones, but they are biodegradable--meaning they won't clog landfills.
