Our new paper “Engineering cellulose fibre inorganic composites for depth filtration and adsorption” has been published in Separation and Purification Technology. This study demonstrates that highly fibrillated nanocellulose fibres combined with a cationic wet strength polyelectrolyte can be used to tailor the filter structure and properties. Nanocellulose-depth composites provide new purification opportunities in pharmaceutical and food product stream by combining adsorption and filtration to remove interfering elements and colloids.
