Biocomposites to substitute plastic

Biocomposites to substitute plastic

Agroindustrial side-streams will be exploited for cellulose nanofibers (CNF) that will form the basis for composite manufacture. Drop-in technology will be demonstrated with injection moulding as proof of concept, and applicability for food packaging will be evaluated.

Main challenges comprise removing water from CNF and integrate it with the matrix components amylose and bioresin so that optimal material properties are attained plus good processability.

Participating partners: University of Copenhagen, Nordic Sugar, Plantcarb ApS, Pond A/S, Leaf Packaging ApS
