Cellulose Nanofibers Market in Japan 2020
Published: March 3, 2020 Content info: 210 Pages
Description

Strong government and industry funding has given Japan the world's largest cellulose nanofibers (CNF) “industry” with commercial production facilities operating across the country. Also, ambitious national targets for reducing CO2 emissions make nanocellulose particularly attractive for product development.

Japan is by far the largest producer and consumer of CNF products. CNF research and development started in Japan around 2000, and more than 50 companies are seriously developing their manufacturing technologies and applications. Additional companies are also involved in government projects.
