Carbohydrate biomass constitutes an abundant and renewable resource that is attracting growing interest as a biomaterial. Convincingly the use of different natural “elementary bricks”, from oligosaccharides to fibers found in biomass, when mimicking self-assembly as Nature does, is a promising field towards innovative nanostructured biomaterials, leading to eco-friendly manufacturing processes of ...

Cereal waste biomass is a potential source of valuable compounds such as bio-based fibres that can be used in new potential applications. This is the case of the microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) which is a novel type of cellulose with nano-scale dimensions and very interesting properties for the development of composite materials due to its high strength and stiffness combined with its low weight, ...

Biomass production costs are low in Brazil compared to other parts of the world, due to proper climate and advanced forest and agricultural technologies. The productivities of elephant grass (Pennisetum spp; 30-45 t/ha/yr bone dry) and eucalypt crops (20-30 t/ha/yr bone dry) in Brazil are amongst the world largest, with good perspectives of growing even further. Thus, Brazil presents great potenti ...

Scale-Up Nanoparticles in Modern Papermaking (SUNPAP)

Start date: Jul 1, 2009, End date: Sep 30, 2012,

Past years have made the radical change of the European paper industry evident to everyone. To accelerate growth, the industry has to beat the product commoditization and renew its product base with value-added products. Energy saving is not just part of the environmental agenda, it has become the most crucial topic for the competitiveness of European paper industry. In order to maintain the advan ...
