Nanocellulose advance soaks up CO2 to produce wonder fabric

04/9/2013 |

Bacterial nanocellulose produced by blue-green algae may be used to both absorb carbon dioxide and produce a feedstock that can be used to make a wonder fabric that's both lightweight and stronger than steel. The advance is a product of research by a team at the University of Texas at Austin that found a way to enhance the ability of the algae to make nanocellulose.
