R&D Breakthroughs in Biomaterials, Packaging and Media

”VTT's internationally recognised expertise gives us reliable suport for product development” Jouni Hakkarainen, Metsä Wood

Back to technologies



​VTT has a profound expertise in how to produce, tailor and functionalise several different kinds of nanocellulosic materials and the structures of these (e.g. gels, films, webs, foams) from various plant-based raw material sources. The benefits of this unique biobased material family can be foreseen as being exploited as strength enhancers in paper and in (nano)composite structures such as emulsion stabilizers and viscosity enhancers in fluids, as well as being used, for example, in oxygen barrier films in food packaging. In addition to this, several high value applications, for example, in selective membranes, electronic devices and diagnostics can be anticipated where the inherent features of the nanoscaled cellulosic materials can be utilised.
