This subcommittee focuses on the incorporation and use of CNC, Lignin, and Other Nanomaterials in downstream applications. For applications and products using CNF & MFC, refer to Applications and Product Development: CNF & MFC Subcommittee.
Focus areas covered by this subcommittee will include the production and characterization of new products containing CNC, Lignin, and Other Nanomaterials. Application areas will include (but are not limited to) novel composite/hybrid-, soft-, and functional materials exploiting and utilizing the inherent characteristics and unique properties of cellulose nanocrystals, lignin and its nano-analogs, and other renewable nanoparticles and nanostructures. This committee aims to share the latest discoveries on fundamental & applied knowledge, research & development with the community, industry and society, to advance the end-use applications of these renewable (nano)materials.
