Producers Committee


To provide a forum for producers of cellulosic nanomaterials (e.g. nanocrystals, nanofibrils, microfibrils, etc.) to share industry-wide needs and issues in support for the development of commercial production of these materials.


Focus on industry-wide and pre-competitive issues, including:

  • Identifying research challenges that need to be addressed from a fundamental perspective
  • Identifying areas where industry standards should be given greater focus and support
  • Identify white papers or other publications that are needed to educate the public or material users
  • Identifying white papers, other publications, or technical presentations on specific research areas that would benefit producers.

Committee Membership: Membership is limited to those companies and organizations producing cellulose nanomaterials at the pilot and larger scale. If you feel your organization qualifies, please reach out to Natasha Bush-Postell, Division Manager, at [email protected] to request membership.
