FACE MASKS AND FILTERS BIO-BASED HIGH-PERFORMANCE FACE MASKS AND FILTERS

Plastic face masks have created massive marine & environment plastics issue during COVID-19.

WHO estimates monthly 129 billion face masks consumed.

Fiber-X has created cellulose-based hydrophobic material to replace polypropylene in face masks and energy efficient air filters

COMPOSITE MATERIAILS GRAPHENE-ORGANIC COMPOSITE MATERIALS

Graphene is 200 times stronger than steel, highly conductive and flexible material.

Combined with nanocellulose a superior material emerges: highly flexible, tougher than steel and conductive
