Bio-Based Aerogels: From renewable resources to ultra- light nanostructured materials – Fact Sheet

Bio-aerogels: a new class of versatile and functional biobased materials Bio-aerogels are one of the classes of aerogel materials that exhibit open-porous nanofibrillar network. They are based on natural polymers such as polysaccharides or proteins. Bio-aerogels are produced by sol-gel synthesis via biopolymer dissolution followed by chain self-assembly and drying with supercritical carbon dioxide. No […]

RISE researcher receives half a million for the production of fossil-free aerogels

Fernando Alvarado at RISE Bioeconomy, one of the partners of NanoHybrids, is awarded this year’s Skills Prize from the Gunnar Sundblad Research Foundation. The award of SEK 500,000 will be used to initiate a Swedish research platform for cellulose-based aerogel particles that can, among other things, replace traditional absorbents, thickeners and microplastics. The prize has […]
