Wood dust cardboards

    Wood dust can be used in making cardboard harder and to improve its properties. Wood dust is something that is available in a large quantity and people are looking for ways to get rid of it. On the other hand there is an ever lasting demand for card board boxes for transport of goods. I think cardboard and wood dust or wood chips can be combined to create a better type of card board boxes.

    Hi Aadhithya,

    I like you idea.   How would it differ from a standard cardboard box?

    I think the response is raw materials.



    MFC(Microfibrillated cellulose) obtained from wood chips/ wood dust can improve the properties of cardboard significantly.

    Due to the ability to increase elastic modulus and strength of paper and other materials, nanocellulose is expected to have a positive impact on the properties of corrugated paperboard. Although several patents exist, only a few scientific studies have focused on the effects of NFC on paperboard properties.
