By using the phenomenon of triboelectricity, researchers have been able to utilize frictional forces between two cellulose surfaces to generate electricity.

– No one has previously been able to show a similar result, which is why we, a little cocky perhaps, can call it a new “world record” for cellulose materials, says Renyun Zhang, associate professor at Mid Sweden University, FSCN research centre.
