Nanocellulose Producers, Products, and Applications: A Guide for End Users 

In order to successfully utilize cellulose nanomaterials in commercial applications, end users will need to understand the variety of available materials and the differences among them. Market-Intell developed this report specifically for end users to explain these differences, to detail the offerings of the various suppliers, and to review the state of the industry and the challenges on the road to commercialization. This report covers cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) and cellulose nanofibrils (CNF), as well as microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), and cellulose filaments CF).  Overviews of the various cellulose nanomaterials are presented, with extensive references. 

Also available in electronic format.


Nanocellulose Challenges and Opportunities:  End Users Perspectives 

This report was developed to explore the commercial and technical challenges holding end users back from full commercialization of cellulose nanomaterial (CNM) and provide the viewpoint of end users and potential end users. Opportunities and challenges are explored with recommendations for producers based on:  2017 survey of 40 nanocellulose end users, including executive interviews and End User Panel discussions at 2017 and 2018 International Conference on Nanotechnology for Renewable Materials in Montreal.

Also available in electronic format.


Production and Application of Cellulose Nanomaterials

This publication features more than 100 short technical summaries on preparation, characterization and applications of cellulose nanomaterials.  It represents completed and ongoing work from 45 institutions in 10 countries, preparation and characterization of cellulose nanocrystals and cellulose nanofibrils, applications covered include:  coating, films, medical, composites, liquid gels, aereogels and more.  Bonus Feature:  Cellulose nanocrystals are included within the overcoat varnish of the cover.


Nanotechnology for the Forest Product Industry Vision and Technology Road Map

This report provides the first roadmap of technological needs and research priorities for nanotechnology as it applies to forest products manufacturing processes and forest-based lignocellulosic materials. The workshop participants identified the fundamental research challenges in nanoscale lignocellulosic biopolymer structures, novel surface phenomena, biosynthesis, systems integration, education, and introduction of nanomaterials into the marketplace. 



Micro and Nanoparticles in Papermaking

This nine-chapter volume explains the roles and performance of microparticles in the manufacturing and processing of paper and paper products. It covers key topics such as drainage and retention; cationic microparticles; colloidal silica; organic microparticles; hectorite systems; dual-polymer retention; clay minerals, and electron microscopy.



World of Market Pulp

Highlights 60 global market pulps selected for their distinctive properties, outstanding attributes and ability to represent the wide-range of Market Pulps available in the world. This book contains more than 460 photos, graphs, high resolutions SEMs, and incorporates background material about global market pulps: their forest and fiber sources, pulp qualities and how to select market pulps. Analysis of the 60 individual pulps is presented in a 120-page atlas that contains PFI beater curves test results, fiber morphology data and scanning electron micrographs of handsheets.





Handbook of Pulp & Paper Technology 4th Edition  (SMOOK BOOK)

The renowned, best-selling text to introduce the entire technology of pulp and paper manufacture. The book features 27 chapters covering all aspects of pulping and papermaking. In this Fourth edition, all chapters have been updated, including significant modifications in: Wood and Chip Handling, Mechanical Pulping, Recycled Fiber, Non-Fibrous Additives, and Surface Treatments.  Approximately 90 new illustrations.

Cellulose Nanocrystals:  Properties, Production and Applications

Provides an in-depth overview of the materials science, chemistry and physics of cellulose nanocrystals, and the technical development of advanced materials based on cellulose nanocrystals for industrial and medical applications. Appeal to audiences in the physical, chemical and biological sciences as well as engineering disciplines. It will be of critical interest to industrialists seeking to develop sustainable new materials for the advanced industrial economies of the 21st century.  (Discount does not apply).



Nano Science and Nano Materials: Synthesis, Manufacturing and Industry Impacts

A comprehensive account of how nanomaterials are synthesized and processed, this book presents the theory and technology of introducing nano-based materials as value-added elements into product manufacturing. The book explains the fundamentals of vapor, liquid, solid phase, and biosystem-assisted nanoparticle syntheses, and then confronts the problems of scaling up from lab-based syntheses to manufacturing. Includes case studies.  (Discount does not apply).


Nanocellulose: From Nature to High Performance Tailored Materials

This specialist monograph provides an overview of the recent research on the fundamental and applied properties of nanoparticles extracted from cellulose, the most abundant polymer on the planet and an essential renewable resource. The author pioneered the use of cellulose nanoparticles (cellulose nanocrystals or whiskers and cellulose microfibrils) in nanocomposite applications.The book combines a general introduction to cellulose and basic techniques with more advanced chapters on specific properties and applications of nanocellulose. (Discount does not apply).



Nanotechnology Health and Environmental Risks, 2nd Edition

Examining the state of the science, the book discusses what is known, and what still needs to be understood, about nanotechnology risk. It looks at the uses of nanotechnology for energy, industry, medicine, technology, and consumer applications and explains how to determine whether there is risk—even when there is little reliable evidence—and how to manage it.  (Discount does not apply).
