VTT webinar on May 27th: Cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) – a big hype or on the edge of a breakthrough?

28.4.2015 0:00

How to utilize the full potential of the most abundant biopolymer that mother nature has to offer? How to combine the unique properties of cellulose with one of the “hottest” key enabling technologies, nanotechnology? How can science help to overcome the hurdles?

Cellulose fibrils are already used in commercial products, such as in food, pharma and cosmetics and self-evidently in paper and board. How can cellulose nanofibrils be used to multiply the potential of cellulose in these applications and beyond?

This webinar reviews the status of cellulose nanofibril (CNF) research from industrial perspective and shows through a couple of examples how scientific understanding can lead to breakthroughs when tackling the challenges on the way from ideas to applications. The examples include how to:

  • Make and modify the cellulose-based fibres for selected applications
  • Manufacture films from cellulose nanofibrils
  • Optimize retention and dewatering in paper and board making through piloting
  • Utilize nanocelluloses as rheology modifiers


Join this webinar to learn how you could speed up your development activities through a profound understanding of underlying mechanisms.
