FPInnovations and Kruger Inc. Join Forces to Build Leading-Edge Cellulose Filament Plant
Dec 18 13
FPInnovations and Kruger Inc. announced a joint project to implement the first five ton/day cellulose filament demonstration plant at Kruger's Trois-Rivières Paper Mill. This important research and innovation project represents investments totaling $43.1 million, including funding from Natural Resources Canada, through the Investments in Forest Industry Transformation (IFIT) Program, as well as a grant from the Québec Ministry of Natural Resources, a loan from Investissement Québec, a contribution from Kruger Inc. and funds from FPInnovations' pulp, paper and bioproducts industrial members. A highly innovative wood-fibre based biomaterial, cellulose filaments (CF) are expected to have an immediate impact on Canada's forest industry due to their capacity to be integrated into other materials and to their high strength, light weight and flexibility. CF will be used in a wide range of applications as a lightweight strengthening additive to produce lower cost commercial pulps, papers, packaging, tissues and towels. Looking to the future, CF may be combined with many materials to create high value products ranging from flexible packaging and films to structural and non-structural panels in building construction.
