Albany, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/02/2014 -- Over the last few years the conversion of renewable lignocellulosic biomass and natural biopolymers into chemicals, liquid fuels and feed supplements has received increasing attention. The exploitation of nanostructured cellulose, in the form of nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC), micro/nanofibrillar cellulose (MFC/NFC) and bacterial cellulose (BC) has mainly been motivated by the sustainability trend, ever-increasing prices of petroleum and the high-energy intensity in production of chemicals and synthetic polymers. This growing interest is related to their unsurpassed quintessential physical and chemical properties.

Today there is a substantial amount of research on these materials, and commercial development is now underway with some very promising applications. With appropriate conversion and extraction technologies as well as modification and characterization, nanocellulose can be integrated into bio-based products. Their use in novel materials and various applications has substantial environmental and economic benefits. Nanocellulose can be produced from several raw materials and applying various pre-treatments, which yield tailor-made nanofibrils with specific morphology and surface chemistry. The material has great potential in applications such as strength enhancers in paper, as additives, in emulsions, as oxygen barriers for food packaging and in biomedical devices.
Nanocellulose is also being developed for use in novel applications ranging from scaffolds in tissue engineering, artificial skin and cartilage, wound healing and vessel substitutes to biodegradable food packaging. Applications in polymer reinforcement and anti-microbial films will be hitting the market soon.
