Home > Press > TAPPI Announces New International Nanotechnology Division

Abstract:
TAPPI is pleased to announce that its nanotechnology groups have created a new International Nanotechnology Division. This Division will focus on nanotechnology for renewable materials, including the advancement of research and development for nanocellulose. The International Nanotechnology Division will not only concentrate on developments for traditional forest-based products like pulp, paper and building materials, but also on applications such as coatings, plastics, digital displays, military body armors, and medical implants, among others. Comprised of producers, academia, government, consulting companies, suppliers and others in the industry, it will serve as the leading global forum for knowledge sharing in this high growth sector.

TAPPI Announces New International Nanotechnology Division

Norcross, GA | Posted on March 10th, 2011

"When TAPPI volunteers suggested we take our nanotechnology efforts to the next level, we jumped at the opportunity to help the industry capitalize on this promising sector," said Larry N. Montague, President and CEO of TAPPI. "We see the new division as a platform for helping the industry respond to the rapidly changing field of nanotechnology, especially as commercialization develops in this fast-growing sector."

Creation of the new division builds on the six years of success with TAPPI's International Conference on Nanotechnology for Renewable Materials, held this year in Washington DC, June 6-8 (www.tappinano.org). Among other important contributions, this annual event has significantly accelerated the development of standards for nanocellulose, such as bringing TAPPI's ANSI Accredited Standards process to support ISO's Technical Committee on Nanotechnology. The International Nanotechnology Division will augment this important event by supporting technical developments and broader industry understanding of the value of nanocellulosic nanomaterials. It will also address emerging issues around environmental health, safety and risk assessment in the development of commercial nano-based products.

The new International Nanotechnology Division is TAPPI's eleventh division, reflecting continued growth of the organization, which has recently repositioned or added divisions like those for Nonwovens (NET) and business management (PIMA). Each division works to share specific knowledge and provide solutions for the global industry through a variety of member benefits, products, services, and volunteer opportunities, including publications, events, education and training.

TAPPI is now recruiting volunteers for the International Nanotechnology Division who can help identify advancements in renewable nanocellulose materials research, development and, most importantly, commercialization.
