In 2011, Innventia opened the world's first pilot plant for the production of nanocellulose, which has a capacity of 100 kg/day. The facility makes it possible to produce nanocellulose on a large scale for the first time and is an important step towards the industrialisation of this technology. Having the capability to produce larger volumes means it is now possible to study the use of nanocellulose in applications that demand significant amounts of material.
The pilot facility's connection to the existing pilot-scale processing equipment at Innventia, which includes screens, refiners, fractionation equipment, not to mention a paper machine, makes it a unique testing and production unit. It provides us with exceptional resources to work with you towards the commercialisation of your nanocellulose applications.
