NanoCrystalline Cellulose (NCC)
NanoCrystalline Cellulose (NCCTM) is the primary structural building block of trees and other plants, and can be economically extracted from the wood fibres of Canada’s vast forests - an abundant and renewable resource. This high-value nanomaterial will be used to manufacture a wide range of uniquely enhanced products. It will enable development of new products, while transforming the performance of existing products.

NCC improves strength and toughness and can reduce damage caused by wear, humidity and spectral radiation. Light reflectivity (tunable from ultraviolet to infra red), gas impermeability, and stability over time, makes the creation of many new forest-based nanoproducts that can be used in numerous industrial sectors possible.
