Cellulose nano-fiber reinforced plastic -modification and composites technology-
Dr. Tekeshi SEMBA,
Team Leader, Polymer Material Lab.,
Kyoto Municipal Institute of Industrial Technology and Culture
The key factor to gain optimal properties of cellulose nano-fiber (CNF) reinforced plastic are dispersibility of the cellulose fiber and interfacial interaction of CNF/plastic. Hydrophobicity of the cellulose is raised by chemical modification of hydrophilic cellulose, and its improved compatibility with a plastic achieves the superior composite material. In this study, the effect of modification for the CNF composites and recent results of hydrophobic plastic composites will be shown.

The latest trends of cellulose nan
Mr. Niwa Hiroyoshi,
Senior Manager, Environment & Social infrastructure,
Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting LLC
Cellulose nanofiber (CNF) is a carbon-neutral raw material derived from plant sources such as timber. It is expected that CNF can be used in various basic materials due to its light-weight, strong and elastic characteristics associated with high specific surface area and porosity.In particular, the utilization of CNF in high-strength materials (such as auto parts or the casing of electric appliances) and high-performance materials (such as construction and interior materials) enables weight reduction, higher efficiency, and thermal insulation, promising potential contribution to improve energy efficiency and to reduce CO2 emissions.
On this presentation, we report the research p roject of CNF trends on behalf of Ministry of the Environment.

“Renovation of paper materials” by using nanocellulose
Dr. Hirotaka Koga,
Specially-appointed assistant professor,
The Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research,
Osaka University
Firstly, I will introduce recent progress on “nanocellulose”. Then, I would like to talk about our research progress on the development of a new type of paper materials by using nanocellulose, such as a catalytic “paper reactor” for efficient and sustainable chemical manufacturing.

Challenge to "light, tough, comfortable for work"
Consideration of Cellulose nanofiber for functionality of hand tools
Mr. Hirohi Takahashi,
Department Director,
Next Generation Development Business Division,
Next Generation tools development office,
© KYOTO TOOL CO., LTD.
The product development concept KTC, aka top hand tool manufacture in Japan, is  "realizing safe, comfortable and  efficiency"
By continuous research and development, KTC evolves to make the tools lighter, stronger.
KTC begun to challeng for utilizing the functionality of CNF for worker's safety improvement.

Current situation and future challenges in Research & Development of Cellulose Nanofibers
Mr. Akira ISOGAI,
Professor, Biomaterial Sciences,
Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo
Fundamental and application studies on cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) as new bio-based nanomaterials have globally and intensively been carried out. Many functionalities and unique characteristics of CNFs have been found in the leading-edge material fields up to date, although some problems in practical CNF applications have also been reported. New fundamental and application information of CNFs as well as their future challenges will be presented in this seminar.
