Cellulose fibers are enjoying a renaissance as highly efficient reinforcing components in biobased plastics. On account of their particular structure, they are able to improve three partially conflicting properties at the same time in, for example, newly developed PLA compounds. This results in specially tailored PLA materials combining high strength and stiffness with good impact strength.
