Cellulose is the most abundant renewable resource on earth. It forms the structure of all trees and plants, and represents Maine's largest natural resource. While a variety of nanomaterials have been the subject of large research investments, cellulose nanofibrils have been less studied. The Advanced Structures and Composites Center's nanocellulose research program focuses on utilizing lower cost nanocomposites made from cellulose to develop the next generation of lightweight high performance, bio‐based materials for a variety of defense, infrastructure, and energy applications.
