Green Science Alliance develops innovation made of cellulose-based biodegradable resin

June 18, 2020
Press Release: Green Science Alliance

Environmental problems such as plastic pollution and global warming due to human population explosion are getting severe in the world and especially the microplastic problem in the marine environment is becoming a devastating issue

It is predicted that the amount of plastic garbage will be more than that of fish in the world by 2050. There are also some scientific reports that these microplastics are already in the human body. Therefore, plastic recycling, reduction of plastic usage itself and biodegradable plastic usage and development, have been intensively challenged and carried out.

In this regard, Dr Ryohei Mori at Green Science Alliance Co has developed biodegradable textile, fiber, yarn and film with cellulose-based resin. The company has also applied its nano cellulose composite technology into this cellulose-based material, and made so-called ‘cellulose + nano cellulose’ material and products. Green Science Alliance had confirmed previously that mixed nano cellulose in the biodegradable resin can increase biodegradability. This cellulose + nano cellulose resin is a very interesting new type of biodegradable resin material. In addition, cellulose can be said to be a very environmentally friendly biodegradable resin since most of biodegradable resins are composed of either petroleum or edible biomass. Using edible biomass such as corn, sugarcane, potato, etc, as raw material can be risky since they compete with human nutritious food.

The company will now focus efforts on improving resin properties such as mechanical properties, molding properties, etc, in order to create good biodegradable resin fiber, yarn, film, as well as non-wovens.

The rescheduled Plastic Free World Conference & Expo 2020 will take place at Cologne Messe, Germany, on Monday 9 November and Tuesday 10 November. To register for this highly focused, solutions-driven event, please click here. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, please email
