Mobile factory that produces nanocellulose
Innventia and BillerudKorsnäs have entered collaboration with the purpose of building a mobile demonstration plant for nanocellulose and to test the material in full-scale papermaking. Innventia has been running a pilot plant for the production of nanocellulose at the research institute in Stockholm since 2010.
Nanocellulose can be used as additives in papermaking to make lighter and stronger paper and board. It can also be used in a variety of other applications in the food, pharmaceutical, and construction industry. This means that paper is given completely new properties and could replace plastics, for example, in many areas (News Item Innventia, 26 June 2014).
