Sappi to build a nanocellulose pilot plant in the Netherlands

Brighland campusLanda is not the only company using nano technology for our industry. Paper producer Sappi will start testing their nanocellulose technology in Sittard-Geleen. The technology was developed together with the Edinburgh Napier University. The pilot plant will be located at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus (picture) in Geleen, the Netherlands, where research and development into bio based chemicals and materials are performed.
Nanocellulose is made from ´normal´ wood fibers and has unique optical and strength properties. The production process for nanocellulose is more environmentally friendly than traditional processes with less chemical wasted water. More information about this promising project can be read via this link.
