Nanocellulose landscape overview

Nanocellulose refers to nano-scale polysaccharide consisting of a linear chain of glucose units easily obtained from nature.

Nanocellulose includes: cellulose nanocrystal (CNC or NCC) - rice-like shape with 3-5 nm in width and up to 500 nm in length; cellulose nanofibers (CNF) also called microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) - spaghetti-like shape with 20-300 nm in width and up to several microns in length; and bacterial nanocellulose, which refers to nano-structured cellulose produced by bacteria. The mechanical properties, barrier properties, film-forming behaviors, viscosity make the nature-based nanocellulose useful in numerous applications such as energy storage, flexible electronics, smart composites, sensors & actuators.

Major players covered in this landscape

CelluComp, Asahi Kasei, Celluforce, Daicel, BASF, Rettenmaier & Sohne, and Oji Paper. Laboratory scale manufacturers of nanocellulose include Innventia, Borregaard, Nippon Paper and Stora Enso.
