TAPPI Nano 2019: Focus on New Markets, Paper360º September/October 2019
Most pulp and paper industry professionals have heard about the benefits offered by nano-scale bioproducts—which include microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), cellulose nano-crystals (CNC), and cellulose nano-fibers (CNF). Used as an additive or in composites, nanocellulose is nontoxic, imparts superior strength, is lightweight, and can be made using abundant and renewable raw materials.
“Why, then, hasn’t the industry grown further, faster?” asks Jack Miller, founder and principal consultant, Biobased Markets, in his guest editorial in the May 2019 issue of TAPPI Journal. “The reality is that new advanced materials take a long time to emerge. Plastics, for example, were around for more than 50 years before they became widely accepted…nanocellulose is on a similar track. Much progress has been made, but challenges remain, both technical and commercial.”
