Investment by Sappi after global review of potential sites: Brightlands Chemelot Campus is a R&D and teaching campus focused on performance materials, biomedical materials and bio-based materials. The pilot plant builds on technology developed by Sappi and Edinburgh Napier University. Pilot plant will test the manufacturing of dry re-dispersible Cellulose NanoFibrils (CNF) and determine options for commercial production. Nanocellulose has potential to be used in a huge range of applications.
Production of key raw materials for Perstorp’s innovative general purpose PVC plasticizers, Valeraldehyde and 2-propylheptanol, and associated chemicals at a major extension to Perstorp’s main plant in Stenungsund, Sweden has begun on time. Prime material is being produced soon after start-up.
