Nanocellulose Facility - Capabilities

With the funding from the USDA Forest Service for their Nanofiber Pilot Plant, UMaine purchased an ultrafine grinder, spray dryer, and a major upgrade of the stock preparation and the refining capacity capabilities. This state-of-the-art equipment enables the pilot plant to work at full capacity to reach all its clients needs.
