Researchers at Gorgan University of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, in association with their Norwegian counterparts, have produced nanopaper from cellulose nanofibers derived from bagasse.

The nanopaper has higher tensile strength and tearing resistance than nanopapers made of wood.

Rahman Jafari Petroudi, faculty member of Shahid Beheshti University, Ali Qasemian and Hossein Resalati, faculty members of Gorgan University of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, Kristin Syverud from Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Gary Chinga Carrasco from Norway'sPaper and Fibre Research Institute participated in the project.

Bagasse is the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane or sorghum stalks are crushed to extract their juice. It is used as a biofuel in the manufacture of pulp and building materials.
