  • Commercialization timelines, by market
  • Producer, research centre and application developer profiles

Nanocellulose can be produced from a variety of materials (vegetable matter, bamboo etc.) and after applying various pre-treatments, tailor-made nanofibrils with specific morphology and surface chemistry are produced. As well as being completely renewable, safer to handle, and cheaper to produce, nanocellulose materials also possess exceptional physical and chemical properties.

Today there is a substantial amount of research on nanocellulose and commercial development is on-going, including the construction of multi-ton capacity manufacturing facilities, mainly in North American, Japan and Europe. The market for nanocellulose continues to grow with new products on the market in 2015 and new production facilities under construction.

In the light of the Paris Climate Agreement, development of environmentally sustainable new technologies and materials is of growing importance. Nanocellulose is a prime candidate for use as a sustainable material in industries such as packaging that typically involves the high-energy intensity production of chemicals and synthetic polymers. It will also add new impetus to the traditional paper and board industry and play a role in the future development of printable and flexible electronics. With appropriate conversion and extraction technologies, as well as modification and characterization, nanocellulose can be integrated into bio-based products such as strength enhancers in paper, polymer composite additives, emulsions and oxygen barrier films for plastics packaging.
