Cellulose Nanocrystals (CNC) Pilot Plant

The Cellulose Nanocrystals (CNC) Pilot Plant can produce kilogram quantities of CNC from any fibres with high alpha-cellulose content. Regardless of feedstock, the pilot plant can produce CNC in various final forms, including spray-dried powder or in suspension at various concentrations.

CNC has many useful properties, including great strength, optical characteristics and very large surface area at the nano-scale and can be used in a broad range of applications including drilling fluids, mining tailings mitigation, paints and industrial coatings, automotive components, building materials, plastics and packaging.
