Groene cellulose : tussenrapportage project 0351-04-03-08-004

By K. Molenveld, F.E. Giezen, M.J.J. Litjens and W. Teunissen


This intermediate report describes the progress in the Green cellulose project. The literature studies are in progress and a start has been made with the market study. Furthermore, two experimental trails have been performed. The literature report contains general information on cellulose derivatives, supercritical carbon dioxide processing using supercritical carbon dioxide. The market overview gives insight in market volume, the most important products and producers of cellulose derivatives. So far, the experiments have not been successful since no change in crystallinity was observed and severe cellulose degradation occurred. However, this could indicate that using supercritical carbon dioxide might be used to modify solely the amorphous regions. In future experiments reaction times will be lowered and co-solvents will be added
