Cellulose-based proprietary aerogels and hydrogels applicable in materials and life sciences

Transforming cellulose into smart and sustainable solutions

Cellulose, the most abundant organic polymer found on Earth, exists in various sources such as wood, cotton, hemp, and algae. It can be sustainably obtained from local and responsible sources, making it an environmentally friendly option. Additionally, cellulose is both recyclable and biodegradable.

At AlmaScience, we have developed patented technologies and processes to elevate this sustainable material to new heights. Our cellulose and nanocellulose-based aerogels and hydrogels are incredibly lightweight and possess unique properties. This makes them suitable for a wide range of applications, including packaging, flexible electronics, thermal and sound insulation, and the bio-medical field. By harnessing the abundance of cellulose as a raw material, we are paving the way for a greener and more innovative future.
