Daio Paper starts up cellulose nanofiber plant

Japan's Daio Paper started production of cellulose nanofibers (CNF) at a 10-tonnes/year pilot plant in Shikoku-Chuo City on the island of Shikoku in January 2018. The company markets its products under the Ellex brand, with target applications including fiber reinforcement for plastic composites.

The company plans to use output from the plant for trial production of plastic composite materials and improve their processability with the objective of supplying CNF-reinforced molding compounds. Target applications include automobile and appliance parts.
