Title: Cellulose Nanomaterials — A Path Towards Commercialization Workshop Report
Author: Hansen, Fred; Brun, Victoria; Keller, Emily; Nieh, World; Wegner, Theodore; Meador, Michael; Friedersdorf, Lisa;
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)
Description: Cellulose nanomaterials are primarily isolated from trees and other organisms; are naturally occurring polymeric materials that have demonstrated great promise for commercial applications across an array of industrial sectors; are renewable and environmentally sustainable; and have the potential to be produced in large volumes (i.e., millions of tons per year). The commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials has the capacity to create hundreds of thousands of direct and indirect jobs, particularly in rural America. The United States is currently in a good position to become a leading global source of commercial cellulose nanomaterials innovation, production, and use.
Keywords: nanotechnology, cellulose nanomaterials, polymeric materials
