The project members and partner companies of the research project Plasticized nanocellulose cellulose composites gathered at Mid Sweden University.
The goal of the project is to develop a biobased packaging that can be used for fish and other foods where fossil-based plastic packaging is used today. A film of plasticized cellulose and nanocellulose provides barrier properties to oxygen and a foamed core of plasticized cellulose and nanocellulose provides insulating properties that maintain low temperature in the package during transport. The ambition is to produce the packaging material in a pilot scale and to produce demonstrators.
These persons joined the meeting; Ran Duan (RISE Processum), Kent Malmgren, (SCA R&D), Bo Westerlind (RISE Processum), Anna Svedberg (MoRe Research), Jonathan Ø. Torstensen (RISE PFI), Magnus Norgren (MIUN), Ellinor Bævre Heggset (RISE PFI), Kristin Syverud (RISE PFI), Sara Wallsten (MoRe Research), Nassima El Miri (MIUN) to discuss research and development of plasticized nanocellulose.
The partner companies are BeWi, Domsjö Fabriker, Essge-Plast, MoRe Research, RISE PFI, Ranheim Paper and Board, Tommen Gram and SCA. The project is financied by EU Interreg Sverige - Norge.
