TV Report on Cellulose Nanofibrils Plant

Bangor’s WVII television station had a report on a pilot plant that is in the works at UMaine to make cellulose nanofibrils, a pulp-based super-strong material that could be a replacement for petroleum-based plastic materials. Hemant Pendse, the director of UMaine’s Forest Bioproducts Research Institute, said in an interview the pilot plant will allow UMaine to produce the product on a scale that will enable researchers across the country to work on different applications of the material. The plant will be the only one of its kind in the U.S.
