BACTERIAL NANOCELLULOSE: LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST

Nanocellulose production is reaching the industrial scale, several factories operating nowadays at a scale >1ton/day. Bacterial Nanocellulose (BNC), long recognized a very promising nanocellulose, stays confined to a “traditional” food product available in Asian countries and few biomedical products. However, its potential in cosmetics, food and composites is indisputable and technically it may outperform cellulose nanocrystals or microfibrilar nanocellulose, given the much higher aspect ratio. In this lecture, the potential of BNC as a colloid stabilizer will be discussed.
