Cellulose Nano Crystals

Cellulose is the most abundant bio-polymer on earth.
It is a primary building block of the cell wall of all living plants.
CNC provides plants with extraordinary strength, that can be utilized as a building block for the enhancement of existing materials and for the production of novel eco-friendly materials.

Melodea has developed a unique technology for the extraction and industrial production of CNC from wood pulp and paper production side streams. We produce CNC and utilize it in our bio-based solutions for various applications.
