HCI vapor was studied earlier with cellulose hydrolysis. Gaseous HCI is lntroduced as a novel reagent with cellulose hydrolysis with CNC production • Reaction is rapid and escalates as a fonction of cellulose moisture content, reaction time and applied gas pressure • Formation of humins takes place with intensive hydrolysis conditions Collected excess gas can be reused. The yields of degraded celluloses are high (> 90 %, low moisture content of celiulosic raw material).
