Revolutionary nanotechnology to replace plastic with simple paper

Revolutionary nanotechnology to replace plastic with simple paper

Cellulose is the most abundant and renewable organic compound on earth. Completely renewable, we believe it has tremendous untapped potential for our economic future and our environment. Cellulotech is a nanotechnology company focused on R&D around cellulose with a patent portfolio. Our main focus is on chromatogeny, a process discovered by our Chief Scientist, Dr. Daniel Samain. Chromatogeny is a green chemistry process (no solvent) that can provide any cellulose-based material with a permanent hydrophobic property while keeping all the recyclability, biodegradability, and compostability properties of paper. It can also provide oil, grease, and oxygen barriers similar to many plastics. Having already been implemented at an industrial scale, this low-cost nanotechnology (starting at $30-$40 per ton) is a real and credible renewable alternative to many plastics coatings and other undesirable chemicals (such as PFASs or paraffin) in the packaging industry. It also opens a new world of possibilities in the areas of construction, healthcare, consumer products, or environmental protection.
