Nanotechnology for the Forest Product Industry Vision and Technology Road Map
Authors: Rajai Atalla, James Beecher, Robert Caron
This publication represents a report of the Nanotechnology for the Forest Product Industry Workshop held November 17-19, 2004 in Lansdowne, VA. The workshop was attended by 110 leading researchers with diverse expertise from industry, government laboratories, and academic institutions from North America and Europe. This report provides the first roadmap of technological needs and research priorities for nanotechnology as it applies to forest products manufacturing processes and forest-based lignocellulosic materials.
The workshop participants identified the fundamental research challenges in nanoscale lignocellulosic biopolymer structures, novel surface phenomena, biosynthesis, systems integration, education, and introduction of nanomaterials into the marketplace. 2005. 84 pages, soft cover.
