March 23, 2016 - 1:07pm
Highly crystalline nano particles, known as nano crystalline cellulose (NCC), are released when cellulose fibrils are processed under carefully controlled conditions. A unique technique for the self-assembly of NCC particles into highly ordered, cellular structures has recently been developed by Melodea and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. NCC-Foam will address this process by developing commercially-viable, lightweight, rigid foam core materials from self-assembled nano-crystalline cellulose (NCC). 4A Broom Business Park Bridge Way Chesterfield, UK S41 9QG
