Development of new characterization methods of woody biomass for a plastic-free society

【FOOD】 Nakaba Team

  • Overview

    Marine pollution caused by plastic waste is becoming more serious worldwide. We need to reduce the amount of plastic usage, and deplasticization has become an urgent global issue. As a solution of this problem, the use of renewable resources as an alternative material to plastics is attracting attention. Among renewable resources, woody biomass is not only biodegradable but also carbon-neutral, and is expected to be a next-generation clean energy source and a recyclable carbon resource. Our research team will develop characterization methods from multiple perspectives for the highly effective utilization of woody biomass.
