The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Nanocellulose processes and materials

The proposal for The Bioeconomy Research Programme 2018–2020 consists of a number of programme areas containing a variety of research topics. The programme areas each address mutual questions and opportunities of great interest to a consortium of RISE customers. All programme areas are planned for three years.

The nanocellulose field is expanding and the development of new applications is accelerating. Yet, some applications have not been realized largely due to uncertainties regarding the best starting material, pretreatment procedures, dewatering mechanisms and the processing of nanocellulose into various materials. These uncertainties will bead dressed and elucidated using characterization as a key ingredient, further accelerating nanocellulose applications.
