summary Humanity is currently facing an environmental crisis driven by our reliance on fossil fuels and our indiscriminate use of global resources. To address this we investigate the development of a sustainable new material, nano-cellulose. Nano-fibrillated Cellulose (NFC) is a highly renewable material processed from wood fibres. In this research we present a new method for processing renewable Nano-fibrillated Cellulose into a bulk material. Presently, traditional wood fibre is utilized extensively; it is used in the production of paper, clothing, and buildings. This research asks if wood fibre could be utilized in applications that go beyond its traditional uses? Using an iterative approach, the research reveals the challenges of working directly in the processing and production of nano-fibrillated cellulose, a high-performance bio-polymer requiring no adhesives and no petrochemicals as a finished product. The paper presents these experiments and discusses the feasibility for using nano-cellulose in building products.
