Nanoscale cellulose particles are popping up in a dizzying number of applications. But despite their high commercial potential, investment in large-volume uses of the materials is low. Uncertainties related to the environmental, health, and safety aspects of the materials could also hinder commercialization of these products.
Cellulose nanomaterials have a lot going for them. These materials cost less to produce than other nanomaterials. They have a high strength-to-weight ratio and properties that make them promising . . .
