What is Nanocellulose?
Nanocellulose is a material formed from one of the most abundant resources on the planet, cellulose. Cellulose is found in all plant materials. It can be harvested from almost any of them and then processed down to its smallest form, nanocellulose.
The Wonder Material
Renewable | Strong | Transparent | Hydrating | Healing | Modifiable
Nanocellulose is derived from finely ground paper pulp. The pulp is subjected to an extensive homogenization process which extracts the nano sized fibers. These fibers can be extremely low cost, and nanocellulose has applications in most of today’s industries.
One Nanometer is one BILLIONTH of a meter
Cellulose nanofibers are 1000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. This means an enormous amount of surface area is available for use and modification.
How it’s Made
The process to turn trees into nanocellulose is fairly simple but requires specific steps.
