Explore the industrial potential of nanocellulose
This seminar is postponed to a later date. You can no longer register, until we have a new date in 2024.
Meanwhile, do not hesitate to contact our expert Patrick Cosemans with all your questions on the subjects of this seminar.
Breakthroughs in the production, processing and application of nanocellulose as functional materials at industrial level have been achieved in latest years, bringing the material to the forefront as a competitive and sustainable solution in several domains. All this will be discussed from different perspectives during this workshop.
Experts in the field from Belgium and abroad, including Research Institute of Sweden (RISE), Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), Karel de Grote Hogeschool, Sappi Europe and Nanocrystacell, have already confirmed to be present and share their expertise.
Don't miss this opportunity to delve into the world of nanocellulose and explore how it can enhance your company's sustainability, innovation and competitiveness.
