Open our Minds… Maniac World The Forest Products Industry is poised to unlock big innovations using the tiny yet powerful science of nanotechnology. to new possibilities. See the world differently.
What is nanotechnology? The science, engineering, and technology conducted a the nanoscale – about 1-100 nanometers (1 meter = 1 billion nanometers). U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative:
How can it help the Forest Products Industry? Producing & Using Renewable and Sustainable Nanomaterials Cellulose Nanomaterials Extracted from woody biomass, grasses Bacterial, algae and tunicate sources also being studied Clays & Minerals Working on layer-by-layer deposition and have shown improved strength with Kaolin clays on coated papers Applications include: barriers, tougher coatings, flame resistance, higher stiffness on lighter weight coated paper and board
Cellulose nanomaterials from trees Whispering Crane Institute Trees are made of the most abundant biopolymer on earth – cellulose. New technology allows us to access the basic components of cellulose called cellulose nanomaterials. These components can be used to develop amazing new products that will change our lives and help sustain our planet.
Oxygen Carbon Dioxide Water There are more forests today than 100 years ago in the U.S. Annually, there are over 1.5 BILLION trees planted in the U.S. alone, and Europe experiences similar growth and sustainability. These new trees generate oxygen and remove carbon dioxide to help the earth combat climate change. These trees also become the source of thousands of diverse products we depend on every day… Why trees?
Cliff Haven Church Blog Innovation Opportunity Cellulose nanomaterials can produce renewable materials for a broad range of applications Cellulose fibers in trees are also a source for making everyday products better, and creating new classes of sustainable products that protect the environment and create jobs. Cellulose nanocrystals, as small as a few atoms, are exceptionally strong structures -- even more so than steel -- yet very light. They are the key to creating high-tech materials for cutting-edge, biodegradable products of the future.
Cellulose Nanomaterials can be produced in tens of millions of ton quantities Opportunities For Renewable Nanomaterials Light Weight Nano Composites Batteries and Super-Capacitors High Efficiency Filters Reinforced Polymers Bio Plastics Nano Coatings Sensors Flexible Displays Photonic Devices Nano Membranes Multifunctional Packaging
