Abstract
THERE ARE MANY IDEAS ON WAYS TO UTILIZE BIOMASS MATERIALS. THEY CAN BE CONVERTED INTO A FIBER THAT CAN BE ACETYLATED TOBE USED FOR THE PRODUCTION OF COMPOSITES. THESE COMPOSITES CAN BE USED IN MANY STRUCTURAL AND NONSTRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS. BY UTILIZING THE XYLAN-I U.S. PATENT # 4,842,877, THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL BIOMASS CHANGES ITS LIGNIN-CELLULOSE-HEMICELLULOSE CONFIGURATION TO ONE WHICH ALLOWS FOR IMPROVED AND MORE EFFICIENT ACETYLATION OF THE BIOMASS FIBER INTO A COMPOSITE WHICH ARE INEXPENSIVE AND HAVE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE ASPECTS. THIS WILL RESULT IN HIGH-VOLUME, LOW-COST APPLICATIONS.
