The Global Market for Nanocellulose in Polymer Nanocomposites and Packaging

The Global Market for Nanocellulose in Polymer Nanocomposites and Packaging

The exploitation of nanocellulose has mainly been motivated by the trend for sustainability, ever-increasing prices of petroleum and related products (such as packaging) and the high-energy intensity production of chemicals and synthetic polymers. Growing interest is also related to their exceptional physical and chemical properties and reduced cost. Unlike synthetic nanoparticles, nanocellulose is also completely renewable, cheaper to produce and safer to handle. Nanocellulose can be produced from several raw materials and applying various pre-treatments, which yield tailor-made nanofibrils with specific morphology and surface chemistry.

With appropriate conversion and extraction technologies, as well as modification and characterization, nanocellulose can be integrated into bio-based products such as strength enhancers in paper, polymer composite additives, emulsions and oxygen barrier films for plastics packaging. The Global Market for Nanocellulose in Polymer Nanocomposites and Packaging examines the market for these applications.
