Hiroyuki Yano Featured Keynoter at TAPPI Nanotechnology Conference

Norcross, GA | Posted on July 22nd, 2010

Dr. Yano will present "Potential of Cellulose Nanofiber-Based Materials" on Monday, September 27, 2010. He is a Professor at the Research Institute of Sustainable Humanosphere, Kyoto University. He received his Ph.D. in wood science from Kyoto University in 1989. He joined Kyoto Prefectural University as assistant professor in 1987 and later moved to the Wood Research Institute at Kyoto University as associate professor in 1998. During 1997-1998 he was a Visiting Scientist at the Forest Products Laboratories at CSIRO in Australia.

Yano received the Young Scientist Award from the Japan Wood Research Society in 1989, Hayashi Jisuke Award from the Cellulose Society of Japan in 2005, and the Japan Wood Research Society Award from the Japan Wood Research Society in 2009. He is a fellow of the International Academy of Wood Science. A link to Dr. Yano's photo appears at www.tappi.org/content/media/SpeakerYANO.jpg.

His research involves extraction of nanofibers from biomass resources such as wood, plant fibers, and crab and shrimp shells, and their utilization as a component of nanomaterials for optical and structural purposes.

This Nanotechnology Conference brings together leading researchers, industry experts, government representatives and other stakeholders. In technical sessions and face-to-face meetings, they share developments, perspectives and discuss new ideas and breakthrough concepts on nanotechnology-based advances.
