What is the research programme area about?
Innventia's pilot facility will be utilised to develop, optimise and demonstrate up-scaled processes for production of nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC). A key focus is to develop characterisation methods and processes and processing routes to tune and control the NFC properties that meet the demands for subsequent use.
What benefit will the research bring?
There is significant potential for NFC in applications such as nanocomposites, films and laminates, foams and threads, and thickeners. This programme aims at making nanocellulose processing both economically viable and technically robust.
