Stage of Commercialization
Cellulose Nanocrystals commercialization in general is in the pilot to pre commercial phases. We are in the pilot stage, capable of making product in the kilograms per week scale. We have just completed plant CAPEX and OPEX work for plants ranging from 10 t/day of CNC and up.
Every CNC producer will tell you that they view the market as being the constraint to building commercial scale plants. If there was sufficient demand at the required price, they would build the plants to supply it. The likely large scale buyers state that they will begin to purchase when secure supply, quality and price are in place. This means that somebody has to make the first move. Who should this be?
We are prepared to enter into agreements with organizations in the form of joint ventures, licensing or other arrangements. Whoever enters into these agreements will be assuming significant technological risk, but the rewards of being the first mover in such a large space should be attractive enough for companies to pursue.
Contact us if you would like to discuss this opportunity further.
