Nanocellulose Research Symposium - Thursday, February 8

We are pleased to collaborate with FPInnovations in the presentation of a Nanocellulose Research Symposium in conjunction with PaperWeek.

Six key challenges were identified in the value-added products derived from CNC and forest resources and the symposium will describe each of the challenges and report their early results.
