Objective of this research project is a study of novel method of hydrolytic oxidation for nanocellulose isolation from renewable biomass sources and residues of its processing, as well as the following adaption of the obtained nano-products for reinforcing of innovative bio-nanocomposites.
Tasks of the project proposal are:
Novel principal technological scheme of obtaining nanocellulose due its cost-effectiveness caused by reduced consumption of oxidant, water and energy predictably will gain attention of producers and thereby high potential of commercialization.
