Summary of Business

Cellulose nanofiber (CNF) is a material composed of nanosized cellulose fibrils. This plant-derived material, which offers high strength and high modulus at one-fifth the weight of steel is expected to be used in products in various fields as the next generation material.
The Ministry of the Environment of Japan launched the NCV (Nano Cellulose Vehicle) project by forming a consortium led by Kyoto University in FY2016. This project is designed to develop CNF composite resin and automotive components and the performance of these CNF-based products is also evaluated at each stage. NCV project aims the dissemination of CNF-based products in the automotive industry in order to reduce CO2 emissions through promoting energy conservation and weight reduction of automotive.
