The Nanocellulose Report 2020

The Nanocellulose Report 2020

The global nanocellulose market, encompassing Cellulose nanofibers (CNF) and Microfibrilated Cellulose (MFC), Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and Bacterial cellulose (BC), has accelerated over the last few years as producers in Japan and to a lesser extent North America and Europe bring products to market. The development of these remarkable materials has compelled major paper and pulp producers to gravitate their traditonal business towards advanced biorefineries, which have met with initial success and resulted in production capacity increases.

These bio-based materials are abundant, renewable and inexpensive but are extremely strong, durable, and lightweight, non-toxic and are lower cost than other advanced materials and nanomaterials. Used as a materials additive and in composites, nanocellulose will help to drive the global move away from oil-based plastics and products to sustainable, bio-based alternatives.
