Transparent Paper

Project Description

The purpose of this project is to prepare cellulose-based, transparent, ductile films with good barrier properties at RHs below 80% in order to replace petroleum-based polymeric materials in packaging applications. Chemically modified nanocelluloses and cellulose-rich fibres will be used to make transparent paper to match the properties of petroleum-based polymers in terms of processability and characteristics while keeping the cost at similar levels.
