Only one day left: The 2021 TAPPI NANO Webinar Series is here!

Don't miss the chance to attend the Nanocellulose: Sustainable Isolation and Advanced Applications webinar held tomorow, February 23rd 9:00 AM, as it explores a type of green and sustainable nanomaterial.

Nanocellulose has attracted tremendous interest in research and development in both academia and the industry. Although nanocellulose is naturally existing in the sustainable biomass, its sustainability is heavily dependent on the isolation process.

It is essential to further explore the potential of nanocellulose in the development of high value-added advanced materials to keep up the momentum gained in nanocellulose over the past two decades.

In this webinar, participants can expect to spark more research interest in the field of bio-based nanomaterials. Dr. Feng Jiang, Assistant Professor in the Department of Wood Science at the University of British Columbia, will review the research activities of his Sustainable Functional Biomaterials Lab over the past two years, including:

  • approaches in isolating lignin-containing cellulose nanocrystals from thermomechanical pulp using deep eutectic solvent
  • developing cellulose nanofibrils based hydrogel sensors
  • 3D printing of cellulose and nanocellulose into strong and superelastic materials
  • fabricating super thermal-insulating aerogel

Webinar attendance is free and open to everyone, but registration is required. Reserve your space today!
