Multi-functionalized cellulose micro/nano-fibers obtained by a very quick and low energy process (single pot reaction)
Illumine project develops a new process to functionalize and fibrillate cellulose. This one pot reaction is faster than industrial state of the art (1 hour vs 24 hours) and so, its energy consumption is very low. Functionalization is useful for specific properties : negative or positive charges; antimicrobial, adhesive, absorbent or barrier effects; chemicals compatibilities… This innovation could address the following markets: pulp & paper, packaging, composites, coatings, textile and others.
