Cavitation Fibrillation of Cellulose Fibres (CaFiCeFi)
Treesearch research themes:
2–biorefinery, 3–material forming
KTH, University of Ljubljana (Slovenia)
The project is of explorative nature and aims on mapping the desttructive nature of cavitation on cellulose fibres. Neither cavitation nor the dispersion of cellulose fibres in its constituents (cellulose fibrils for dissolving pulp fibres) is fully understood. The project objective is to guide whether cavitation is a mean for efficient and dedicated fibrillation at an industrial scale or not.The project is a part of WWSC and is in cooperation with Matevž Dular and Lab, University of Ljubljana (Slovenia)
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
