Abstract

In this contribution, a novel and up-scalable technology to produce plastic-like nanocellulosic films will be discussed. A large-scale film manufacture method was developed, based on traditional solvent casting of the nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) suspension onto a plastic substrate, enabling also roll-to-roll film production. By the technology here presented, several meters of plastic-like films made of pure NFC with smooth and defect-free surfaces are being produced. Furthermore, the surface of the film has been modified, increasing even further areas of application of this material. An overview of the production and surface modification and of these plastic-like films will be delivered, together with a discussion of the most significant results and potential applications.
