The growing concerns over climate change impacts have been driving the interest in the production of biomass derived polymers (e.g., polylactic acid) with applications in a range of sectors like building materials and packaging. Cellulose, first most abundantly available biopolymer in nature, has been used as a candidate feedstock to produce a range of biomass derived polymers.
