Final Report - BIOCELSOL (Biotechnological Process for Manufacturing Cellulosic Products with Added Value)

Project ID: 505567
Funded under: FP6-NMP


This is the final report of the BIOCELSOL project, which aimed to understand the enzymatic action on the cellulose and its impact on the structure and processability of cellulose, to develop viable processes for fibres, films, casings, beads and sponges as well as to demonstrate them. The methodology used included the optimisation of:
1) enzymatic action on cellulose;
2) dissolution technique of treated cellulose; and
3) regeneration of alkaline cellulose solution.

The report provides some introductory information regarding the objectives of the project, as well as a list of the project partners. At the heart of this report is a description of the work that was performed during the project, as well as the main results that were achieved. Some concluding remarks and information regarding the impact of the project complete the report.
