EUON Nanopinion Highlights Benefits of Bio-based Nanomaterials | Bergeson & Campbell, CP

On July 23, 2020, the European Union (EU) Nanomaterials Observatory (EUON) published a Nanopinion titled “Making materials from nanoscale particles: moving forward with plants»By Dr Blaise Tardy, Researcher, Colloids and Bio-based Materials Research Group – Aalto University in Finland. Dr Tardy notes that bio-based nanomaterials such as nanocellulose “have shown great promise in the formation of high performance materials, with the potential to replace plastics.” In addition to replacing hazardous synthetic materials such as single-use disposable materials, these biomaterials could be used in auto parts, 3D printable bioinks, reflective coatings, adhesives and high strength filaments. According to Dr. Tardy, these bio-based nanoparticles hold the promise of large-scale nanofabrication using water-based systems. Dr Tardy states that “[u]Singing water as the solvent to join these fibers together yields a myriad of material types, with increasingly versatile properties associated with ongoing research and development on nanomaterials around the world. As the field of nanotechnology advances, the integration of the use of green and bio-based nanoparticles will become increasingly beneficial, especially for short-lived materials, such as packaging, personal protective equipment to single use and disposable filters. Dr Tardy concludes that “Finding ways to facilitate nanofabrication will become as important as the development of these exceptional nanoparticles, which are essential for future developments in materials science.”
