Abstract

Cellulose was isolated from sugar beet chips, a by-product of sugar production, by wet chemistry. Further processing of the cellulose with a high-pressure homogeniser led to the disruption of cell walls into nanofibrils. Cellulose sheets obtained by casting and slow evaporation of water showed higher strength and stiffness when homogenised cellulose was used compared to unhomogenised cellulose. These cellulose sheets showed significantly better mechanical performance than Kraft paper tested for reference. The addition of cellulose nanofibrils to a polyvinyl alcohol and a phenol-formaldehyde matrix, respectively, demonstrated excellent reinforcement properties. The best mechanical performance was achieved for a composite with a phenol-formaldehyde resin content of 10%, which showed a tensile strength of 127 MPa, a modulus of elasticity of 9.5 GPa, and an elongation at break of 2.9%.
