Potential of nanocellulose in paper production


Customer: UPM

 CHALLENGEIncreased paper tensile strength

Develop nanocellulose technology and new biofibril products.


VTT demonstrated the potential of nanocellulose in paper production in realistic process conditions.

  • Nanocellulose increases paper tensile strength while allowing a reduction in base material weight
  • Confirmation of methodology and results prior to moving to industrial scale production


lainausmerkki_kork_250pix.jpg Collaborating with VTT helps us to estimate the functionality of our newly developed products in realistic process conditions before going to the industrial scale.
