Final Report - NANOFOREST (A nanotechnology roadmap for the forest products industry)

Project ID: 505247
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report for the NANOFOREST project. Successful introduction and application of nanotechnology in the refinement of forest based raw materials will allow production of new generations of innovative and highly value-added materials. Such high-performance materials will exploit the organisation of matter on the nanoscale and will yet be affordable, possible to able to adapt, and benefit a sustainable and competitive industrial development.

The final report shows how the project has been to identify the intersections between current and emerging nanotechnology, and tractable areas within the forest products industry sector. However, the scientific equipment necessary to reach the desired results is expensive and requires highly skilled personnel, and hence limited in accessibility.
