Nanomaterial is biggest hope for struggling forest industry

Abstract:
The biggest hope for Canada's struggling forest industry could be something very small with a big name— nanocrystalline cellulose.

It is nanomaterial — in simplest terms, a product derived through engineering at the molecular scale — derived from wood fibre.

Nanocrystalline cellulose, or NCC for short, has yet to make an impact on the marketplace, but in a few years companies could find commercial uses in goods as diverse as lipstick to SUVs because of properties such as strength and toughness, biodegradability and ability to "tune" colours without dye.
