A U.S. Forest Service report detailing the pathway to commercializing affordable, renewable, and biodegradable cellulose nanomaterials from trees. Cellulosic nanomaterials are tiny, naturally occurring structural building blocks and hold great promise for many new and improved commercial products. Commercializing these materials also has the potential to create hundreds of thousands of American jobs while helping to restore our nation's forests. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in collaboration with the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), organized the Cellulose Nanomaterials Commercialization Workshop held on May 20–21, 2014, in Washington, DC. This workshop brought together a wide range of experts representing industry, academia, and government in an effort to strengthen cross-sector partnerships and ensure that future RD&D efforts are informed by market needs. The workshop generated market-driven input in three areas: Opportunities for Commercialization, Barriers to Commercialization, and Research and Development (R&D) Roles and Priorities.
