Scientists at KTH Royal Institute of Technology created a new biomaterial using wood nanofibers that is stronger even than spider silk. Researchers “densified” wood to turn an already sturdy material into a “super wood” that is as strong as steel.

To accomplish this, researchers used tiny┬ácellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) in a process that forces the fibers to align in the same… View full post on Inhabitat – Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building
