Plastic packaging alternative derived from crab shells and trees

A new material made from substances common in crab shells and tree fibers could replace the flexible plastic packaging used to keep food fresh.

'Kyoto Process' looks to cellulose nanofibers instead of steel

Kyoto - Scientists are working with plastics and cellulose nanofibers to create a product that is five-times lighter than steel but will be five-times stronger.

Your Parmesan cheese may be nothing but wood fiber

Parmesan cheese sprinkled over pasta dishes is almost as American as apple pie to many of us, but the cheese police have discovered that we have been unknowingly sprinkling wood shavings on our spaghetti.

Researchers create a working wooden processor for future PCs

U.S. and Chinese researchers have successfully created a processor made nearly entirely of a material derived from wood. Biodegradable, cheap and fully functional, our phones and computers of the future may be powered by the most basic of materials.

Roll over biology, super computer creates better crops

For years biologists have toiled away to find ways to make better crops. Now it seems the answer lies with computers. An advanced computer has fully detailed the nanostructure of cellulose, the key to creating more robust grains.
