Nanocellulose and its application are widely studied in Chinese Universities, Institutes and Companies.

9AM - 10AM (ET)

Nanocellulose and its application are widely studied in Chinese Universities, Institutes and Companies. Products of nanocellulose include cellulose nanocrystal, cellulose nanofibril and cellulose nanosheet, as well as lignin-nanocellulose. There are a lot of research on nanocellulose preparation from wood pulp, bamboo, and agricultural residues. The nanocellulose derivatives can be converted to hydrogel, aerogel, films, coatings, which can be applied as nano-ink, food packaging, photoelectric material, electrode material, etc. Nanocellulose coating on food packaging paper can provide an oleophobic layer besides enhancing the mechanical strength of paper. The enhancement of paper with lignin-nanocellulose is commercially manufactured. Lignin based nanocellulose is coated on food packaging, providing a scalable application.
