Waste processing in cheaper way

What is it about?

Major objective of this paper was to use waste materials and get cellulose and nanocellulose from it in easier and cheaper way which can be helpful in production of majority of useful products.

Why is it important?

Disposable of waste products are major issue nowadays. Dumping of waste materials creates environmental issues and people suffer from all over the world. Waste processing needs efficient way to overcome these problems so these materials will be use in other products like one we had done.

Idea was based on the general problem around the globe. It help in management of waste products as well as helpful in protection of trees as in past woody plants were used for the isolation of cellulose especially in paper making which might act as contributing factor towards deforestation in near future. Cellulose and nanocellulose have great potential in nearly every field.
