    Welcome to CelluComp

    We develop microfibrilated cellulose based on waste streams of root vegetables.

    At CelluComp we have discovered the exceptional opportunities offered by materials produced from non-hydrocarbon feed-stocks. Microfibrilated cellulose is a perfect example of what we can do. With this and other ideas in mind, our vision is to create Material Change for Good.
