How else is Bio Cellulose used?

Because of its superfine dimensions and hydrophilic (“water loving) nature, bio cellulose is well suited for a range of biomedical applications. For example, it has been successfully used as artificial skin for burn treatments and as an occlusive dressing for chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers. Today, organic chemists continue to explore and refine its use for molding into artificial blood vessels used in microsurgery.

Bio cellulose has long been used in the paper manufacturing industry to enhance paper strength and to create electronic displays, in the electronics industry in acoustic diaphragms for audio speakers, and in the pharmaceutical industry as filtration membranes.
