A key path towards the commercialization of cellulose nanomaterials is to target large-volume applications in commodity products where a successful market introduction could potentially mobilize orchestrated efforts to revitalize the forest products industry. At the [...]
Nanocellulose has been a continuously emerging area of interest over the recent years due to inexpensive, abundant, and renewable nature of the material source. Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are regarded to be highly useful candidates as [...]
Nanofibrillar cellulose (NFC) is among the most promising innovations in the forest industry. Due to its unique properties, NFC has a wide variety of possible applica-tions. As NFC consists of thin and long fibres with [...]
