Research and technical development on nanocellulose. The results will help minimize cost and environmental impact through efficient use of energy and biomass resources, maximize volume and quality through production efficiency and runnability, meet societal needs with products made from forest biomass, and enable circular economy.
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, pre-treatment procedures, dewatering mechanisms and the processing of nanocellulose into various materials. These uncertainties will be addressed and elucidated using characterization as a key ingredient, further accelerating nanocellulose applications.
