The key objective of this project was to apply the tools and techniques of synthetic biology to create a biocatalyst for the production of high purity biocellulose BC, and to develop a scalable process to produce this material for use in critical DoD applications. The biocellulose was subsequently to be formulated into military grade nitrocellulose NC to evaluate its characteristics and conformity to military specifications.
