Renewable cellulose-based fillers have potential to increase sustainability of rubber products

The substitution of petrochemical materials with those obtained from renewable raw materials is an important step towards increasing sustainability. Materials derived from plant cellulose are promising candidates for this application area. They are renewable, abundant and have a low environmental impact. In the rubber industry, microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) is receiving a lot of attention due to its high stiffness, the morphology of its fibrils, its low density and its mechanical properties. Thus, it has a high potential to improve the properties of rubber compounds.
