Development of new bio based materials using nanotechnology
Updated: 2012-04-10 | Print
The objective of this project was to create new functional biofibre-based materials with industrially attractive properties. Functionalized microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) was developed by modification of never-dried MFC using tailored chemical coupling reactions. On a more general level, another objective was the development of a national platform of expertise in manufacture, characterisation and utilisation of MFC (and cellulose in general) as a raw material in new products.
