MoRe Research, alongside Holmen and SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, is investing in nanocrystalline cellulose by building a pilot facility in Örnsköldsvik. The facility will be the first of its kind in Europe and represents an important step, allowing interested companies to develop nanocrystalline cellulose from cellulose-based material on a large scale.
Now and then during the past years, MoRe has been working with non-wood cellulose as fibre raw material. Lately, the interest in this kind of raw material has increased. With its unique pilot digester, MoRe has possibilities to evaluate fibre raw materials such as straw, bamboo and elephant grass for pulp, paper and board as well as for other products.
On 13-14 November the universities in Karlstad and Umeå arrange "The Fifth Workshop on Cellulose, Regenerated Cellulose and Cellulose Derivatives". This international conference brings together researchers from industry and universities and takes place in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. In addition to twenty lectures in the areas of cellulose, regenerated cellulose and cellulose derivatives, study visits to MoRe Research and Domsjö Biorefinery are also organized.
