OD to 3D, Producing Power Papers
The 0D-3D project is financed by SSF (Stiftelsen för Strategisk Forskning). It investigates the use of nanocellulose in conjunction with electronically-conducting and electrochemically-active polymers in energy storage applications. The aim is to develop sustainable and cost-effective materials, and study their use in supercapacitors and batteries. Cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) have been shown to provide an excellent template for the self-organization of conducting polymers with a high degree of crystallinity. Moreover, the very high aspect ratio of CNF, and the ease with which they can be modified chemically, enable strong, durable and water-resilient composites.
