Sappi Plans to Build a Pilot Facility for Low-Cost Nanocellulose

Sappi announced that it plans to build a pilot facility for low-cost nanocellulose at Sittard-Geleen in the Netherlands, the South African wood pulp and paper firm said on Wednesday. The facility would break down wood pulp into nanocellulose or Cellulose NanoFibrils (CNF). CNF could be used in many applications, for example in fibre-reinforced composites and plastics, in food and pharmaceuticals, in rheology modifiers, as well as in barrier and other paper and coating applications, Sappi said. The pilot plant will build on technology developed by Sappi and Scotland's Edinburgh Napier University. The facility, expected to become operational within nine months, would be a precursor for a potential commercial CNF plant, Sappi added.
