In September 2017, Guangdong Engineering Technology Research Center of High-Value and Clean Utilization of Plant Fiber was approved by the Guangdong Provincial Science and Technology Department, focusing on basic research and technology development of high value and clean utilization of plant resources.
Focusing on the bottleneck of key scientific and technological applications in the high-value and clean utilization of plant fibers, the Center conducts research on the application of plant resources in paper making, new energy and new materials. It has formed distinct characteristics in the aspects of quality decay mechanism, supramolecular structure and properties, quality improvement methods, high value utilization of plant fiber and pollution control in the process of high-value utilization of plant fiber. The new technology, process and equipment for the high value utilization of regenerated plant fiber and its process pollution control were developed. The center built an integrated platform for technological innovation and achievement transformation in the field of high-value clean utilization of regenerated plant fiber in China and developed and industrialized several key technologies.
