Biopolymers from wood and chitin for sustainable textile solutions

DITF researchers are testing CO2-binding wood as a raw material for high-tech textiles and investigating possible uses for chitosan, for example as a binder substitute in coatings for previously petroleum-based systems

In many areas, CO2 emissions can be reduced by replacing petroleum-based chemicals with products made from renewable raw materials. This…
