Atlanta, GA | Posted on August 9th, 2013

"I would like to congratulate both Christana Schultz,Virginie Bigand and Assya Boujemaoui for being named poster winners for this year's TAPPI Nanotechnology Conference," said Larry N. Montague, TAPPI President and CEO. "They were selected from a group of over conference 40 posters and their outstanding presentations highlighted some very innovative applications for nanotechnology based on renewable materials."

The first place poster winner was Christina Schütz (photo at left), Wallenberg Wood Science Center, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, and Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Stockholm University, Sweden for a poster on "Carbon Aerogels from Bacterial Nanocellulose as Anodes for Lithium Ion Battery." Second place was awarded to Virginie Bigand, Grenoble INP Pagora - LGP2, France for "Use of Different Quality of MFC for Producing Controlled Release Films." Poster winners receive certificates of recognition and first place receives a cash prize. Posters were reviewed by a team of judges, who evaluated the objective of the work, experimental plan, layout and presentation of results, and conclusions.

The winners were recognized at the Conference dinner gala event, which featured a keynote address by Derek Gray of McGill University, winner of the prestigious Marcus Wallenberg prize, and held at the world renowned Vasa maritime museum.
