Nanofibres made of sludge from Cellulose manufacturer- a success story
For example, at one single cellulose manufacturer, Domsjö Fabrikerna in Sweden, the producer of special cellulose, which is used to in the manufacturing of viscose fibers, causes one thousand tons of sludge as a residue each year. In the current situation the sludge is not re-used. It is this industrial residue, that is of interest for one of the research teams at the Luleå University of Technology. This project to recycle cellulose sludge, for production of cellulose nanofibres is now proving to be an economic and environmental success.
