The forest industry is looking for new technological solutions and products. One very interesting opportunity is the production and use of cellulose nanofibres for new types of materials and novel applications. Nanocellulosic materials are expected to have their first application areas within paper industry products. One of the aims is to create new application and product openings outside the paper sector, which requires the creation of novel, cross-disciplinary scientific knowledge on fundamental material characteristics as well as on chemical and biotechnical modifications of nanocellulose fibres. These are the main aims of the public cross-disciplinarily project called Tailoring of Nanocellulosic Materials for Industrial Applications (Naseva) run jointly by TKK, VTT and nine industrial partners.
