The Exilva project is Borregaard’s set-up and running of the first industrial scale plant for producing Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) in addition to develop advance market segments for the use of this product. It is funded under the BBI JU program of EUs Horizon 2020 effort.
By showing great benefits to starch adhesives in the corrugated board industry, an article about Exilva has been included in the January issue of the International Paper Board Industry (IPBI) magazine. Key benefits are enhanced bonding effects, increased speed on complex qualities and warp improvement. Read the full article here.
Update: This article was also published in the March issue of Corrugated Today.
In the Exilva Flagship project, Environmental Life Cycle Assessment (E-LCA) has been used to evaluate the environmental performance of the different Exilva microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) qualities. In connection with this, four datasets of Exilva MFC have been made publicly available in two different databases.
An innovation from Borregaard makes it possible to produce corrugated board without adding boron derivatives in the glue. "This solution is a response to regulatory concerns about borates, as well as improving productivity and quality of the board", says Project Director for Exilva Per-Ivar Heier at Borregaard.
Borregaard Exilva was part of Euronews' special feature series 'Futuris' in week 22. The topic for this week was "How companies across Europe are creating sustainable products using no fossil fuels".
Exilva Cellulose Fibrils is one of six candidates shortlisted for "Bio-based Material of the Year" Innovation Award 2018.
Exilva is named as recommended natural-based thickener, as UL prospector knowledge center and George Deckner is presenting the 'Contemporary Formulation: best in class Natural and synthetic water based thickeners'.
Borregaard and BillerudKorsnäs have entered into a development agreement where BillerudKorsnäs wish to run full scale tests of packaging products containing microfibrillated cellulose (MFC). Borregaard’s new Exilva MFC plant is well positioned and has sufficient capacity to support BillerudKorsnäs in this development.
Exilva microfibrillated cellulose (also commonly referred to as nanocellulose) can improve concrete mixtures by reducing bleeding and segregation. By using its non-soluble network, Exilva provides increased stability and ability to control flow, highly suitable to for example self-compacting concrete.
