Environmentally friendly process for recovering cellulose from rice straw and for producing regenerated cellulose films

Universität Rostock, 2020

Abstract: An environmentally friendly process for the use of renewable raw materials, especially biomass waste, was developed. This process allows the quantitative isolation of cellulose from rice straw. Furthermore, the viscosity properties of the dissolved cellulose were improved. This enabled a novel process to produce regenerated cellulose. Non-transparent and transparent powders and films of high quality can be produced. These RC powders and films have been fully characterized and applied as separation media. Thus, it represents a future-oriented green alternative to known industrial processes.
