Nanocomposites based on cellulose whiskers and cellulose plastics
|Organization:||Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Sor Trondelag, NO|
|I.P. Brief:||Considerable demand exists for renewable and biodegradable plastics. Previous attempts to provide such plastics have met with mixed results in the trade off between biodegradability; thermal stability; mechanical properties. The invention discloses a strong nanocomposite with improved thermal stability comprised of cellulose compounds, an environmentally beneficial solution satisfying above trilemma.|
|Keywords:||cellulose polymer, nanocrystal, nanowhisker, biocomposite, extrusion process, transparency|
|Specific Market:||Bulk biopolymer consumers and replacement of PVC/PS/Polyolefines.|
