Nanocellulose Facility - Nanocellulose Requests
The UMaine Process Development Center is pleased to supply nanocellulose samples to businesses, laboratories and non-profit organizations. We are currently producing cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) as slurries of approximately 2.8% solids, as well as CNF in a spray-dried form.
The Process Development Center is also distributing cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) manufactured at the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory (FPL). The FPL nanocrystals are available as an 11.8% slurry; they are also available in both freeze-dried and spray-dried forms. In the near future we will carry a number of other types of nanocellulose, in both slurry and dry forms.
