  2. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...
