What is Cellulotech?
Cellulotech is a nanotechnology company focusing on the most abundant organic compound on earth, cellulose. Our goal is to help several industries, such as packaging, to reach sustainability by replacing plastics or harmful chemicals while offering a similar or better cost/performance profile
What is Cellulotech’s technology?
Cellulotech’s main technology is called chromatogeny. It is a green chemistry process (no solvent involved). It has been discovered by our Chief Scientist more than 20 years ago by our chief scientist, Daniel Samain, and constantly improved ever since.
It is able to provide water, oxygen, oil and grease barriers to cellulose-based materials while keeping all their recyclability, compostability and biodegradability properties.
Cellulotech has worked extensively to bring this solution to market and now owns several application and process patents that allows this technology to be industrialized at a large scale.
How does it work?
Chromatogeny grafts a monolayer of molecules on the surface of cellulose-based material such as paper.
How much does it cost?
The total cost is estimated between 0.1 and 1.5 cent ($0.001-$0.015) per square meter, depending on the barriers wanted.
What kind of paper can we use?
The purer the better. But it can also work with recycled paper.
Can it be recycled?
Yes. Treated paper can be recycled (EN 13430) with usual paper/board or be composted. If they are not, they will biodegrade (EN 13432) without harming the environment.
Can the reagent be bio-sourced?
Is it safe for consumers?
Yes. The resulting molecule is already approved in several jurisdictions for food contact. We are currently waiting for the formal approval regarding the process.
Do you use PFAS’s?
Not at all. In fact we can help to get rid of PFAS’s.
Is it resistant to hot content?
Can we invest in Cellulotech?
We will likely raise some funds in the future. If you are interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you provide samples?
Sure. Please contact us at email@example.com
What is the carbon footprint?
A full life cycle analysis has still yet to be independently performed but we estimated it to reduce the carbon footprint by at least 20% and up to 90% depending on the material replaced.
