World Nanocellulose EXPO 2021 – Virtual Event
From Tuesday, June 1st to Monday, June 14th

The largest exhibition for cellulose nanomaterials, World Nanocellulose EXPO 2021, will be held from 1st to 14th of June 2021 as a pre-event of TAPPI’s 2021 International Conference on Nanotechnology for Renewable Materials. Cellulose Nanomaterials such as Cellulose Nanofibers (CNF), Cellulose Nanocrystals (CNC) and Bacterial Nanocellulose (BNC) are intensively attracted more and more because these materials are made from natural resources, as an option of the activity to reduce green-house gas emission and to realize SDG’s. Many new technologies and products using these materials are developing one after another and the nanocellulose related industries are expected to grow strongly in future.

2021 TAPPI NANO Webinar Series - Nanotechnologies to Advance the Carbohydrate-based Society – Webinar (Free)
Tuesday, June 8th | 9:00 AM – 10:30 PM EST |

Lignin and cellulose are sustainable polymers that offer significant opportunities in our transition from a hydrocarbon to a carbohydrate society. Plant cell wall fractionation into materials with sizes in the nanoscale track with phenomena that occur at the fiber level, during digestion and refining. The resultant nanomaterials, based on cellulose and lignin, can be conveniently recombined into bioproducts that display interesting synergies, as multicomponent and multifunctional materials. These aspects will be discussed in terms of their mechanical, optical, thermal, and conductive properties. The paradoxical nature of the papermaking, where water is a key element, leads to one of the most important inventions in the history of civilization. Are nanocellulose and nanolignins the next generation materials in the upcoming material revolution? In this webinar we explore the scientific principles behind papermaking and their relationship with nanocellulose, nanolignins and ligno-nanocelluloses,
