About project

The two-year ValCel project aims to develop chemical and mechanical methods to prepare cellulose derivatives and functional cellulose materials by utilizing ionic liquids, deep eutectic solvents and reactive extrusion in more sustainable processes and materials. The focus of ValCel project is to expand the knowledge on the cellulose dissolution and regeneration processes, functionalization chemistries, techno-economics of developed chemistries, and to create new export opportunities for Finnish companies through enhanced processes and new products.

Duration: 1.1.2021 – 31.12.2022
