“Sustainability.”

It’s become an everyday word in our 21st Century lexicon. And moving forward, biodegradable and renewable substitutes for plastics, like nanocellulose, will become an important part of the effort to sustain our environment.

Finding optimal unit operations for producing plastic-like substitutes from nanocellulose fibers is significant to this quest. Join our webinar to discover how homogenization and separation technology can be used to improve the process. 

Here’s what you’ll learn:  

  • How waste from paper production and other plant-based manufacturing operations can be used for nanocellulose production
  • Why high-pressure homogenization is the ideal method for producing the highest quality nanocellulose fibers
  • The importance of pre-treatment in the fiber delamination process
  • Why centrifugal separation can be used to develop a superior product in terms of quality and water content
  • How it’s possible to take lab-scale findings and move them into a larger production effort
