A production plant for CNFs

By Tetsuo Satoh |

Nippon Paper Industries Co. (Nippon Paper; Tokyo; www.nipponpapergroup.com) is constructing a verification plant for the production of cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) at the Chemical Div. of its Iwakuni Mill. Scheduled to start up in October, the facility will have a production capacity of 300 ton/yr or more. Working under an NEDO program, the company has developed a chemical pretreatment process for disintegrating pulp. Last April, Nippon Paper also established a CNF Business Promotion Office within its R&D Div. to develop the CNF business using pulp as materials. The new organization aims to commercialize the CNF business at an early stage by establishing CNF mass-production technology and promoting application development.
