Microfibrillated cellulose Applications
It can be used in different products, and many of them are part of our daily lives. Check out some examples:
Our microfibrillated cellulose, MFC, is a product that combines innovation and sustainability:
100% renewable source
Produced through a purely mechanical process, without the use of chemicals that are harmful to health
An alternative to replace fossil-based compounds
Its performance attributes come from its high capacity for physical and chemical interaction, due to its large surface area and hydrogen bonds, respectively.
stronger and lighter products
Barrier against grease and oxygen
greater particle capture and water retention
increased protection and impermeability
MFC: Textile Market
Our sustainable innovation culture drives us to create new products and solutions that consider the future of our planet. Therefore, we partnered with a Finnish company in the Woodspin joint venture to explore the use of microfibrillated cellulose in the development of more sustainable fabrics. This resulted in the creation of SPINNOVA®, a textile fiber that does not use chemicals that are harmful to the environment, consumes less water and emits less carbon dioxide when compared to cotton.
