FPInnovations announces that ArboraNano — the Canadian Forest Nano- Products Network — will receive $8.9 million over four years from the federal government. The research and development network brings together nanotechnology and forest sector expertise.

Dave McDonald, vice-president, pulp and paper, FPInnovations says “many of the new products will be based on a plant-derived nanomaterial — nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) — while others will use other nanomaterials in the development of new forest products. Research by FPInnovations scientists has shown that NCC has many remarkable properties, some of which are unique and others that are comparable to those of other well-known nanomaterials.”
