One of the greatest global challenges is the efficient use of renewable sources in order to meet the increasing demand for energy and feedstock chemicals in the future. In this context, biomass is a promising alternative to existing fossil sources such as coal or oil. Cellulose plays a decisive ...
Meeting growing demand in construction chemicals
Dow announced a series of incremental methyl cellulose capacity investments to help construction dry mix customers secure reliable supply of key additives for this expanding area. These capacity increases are part of a multi-phase investment plan for construction chemicals and demonstrate the ...
Stora Enso has increased its ownership up to 100% in the Sweden-based company Cellutech AB. The company specialises in the development of new materials and applications based on cellulose, micro-fibrillated cellulose (MFC) and other wood-based components. The acquisition of Cellutech supports ...
Using ultrapure lignin from the lignocellulosic biorefinery at the Fraunhofer Center for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes CBP in Leuna, researchers at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg (TU HH) have produced lignin-containing aerogels and processed high-porosity insulating boards with ...
Electrode materials from ultrathin carbon nanofiber aerogels derived from cellulose
Carbon aerogels are ultralight, conductive materials, which are extensively investigated for applications in supercapacitor electrodes in electrical cars and cell phones. Chinese scientists have now found a way to make these electrodes sustainably. The aerogels can be obtained directly from ...
The degradation status of modern polymeric museum artifacts can be classified by their smell
Breath analysis in disease diagnostics is a promising research field, and the advances in instrumentation allows the accurate detection of metabolites. But not only the health status of patients, but also the preservation status of museum artifacts could be monitored. Heritage science researchers ...
3D printing with a biobased polymer for CO2-neutral manufacturing
In our modern world, eliminating plastics is inconceivable. Unfortunately, they do have disadvantages, including the formation of CO2 in both production and combustion, depletion of fossil feedstocks, and growth of landfills. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Russian researchers introduce a new ...
Getting More From Biomass
Swedish-Finnish company Stora Enso is undergoing a renewable materials transformation. Previously focused on pulp and paper, the company is developing new, innovative products and services based on wood and other non-food competing feedstock. The goal – to replace non-renewable materials and use ...
The shampoo you washed your hair with this morning. The balloons for the party. Refrigerators and sunglasses, medicine and mosquito repellent, guitar strings and fishing lures. These -- and thousands of other products we use every day -- contain chemicals made from petroleum. But researchers at ...
A team of architects and chemists from the University of Cambridge has designed super-stretchy and strong fibres which are almost entirely composed of water, and could be used to make textiles, sensors and other materials. The fibres, which resemble miniature bungee cords as they can absorb large ...
