    Welcome to CelluComp

    We develop microfibrillated 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. Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) 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.

About CelluComp

CelluComp is a Scottish-based company located in Fife, near Edinburgh. Our team of scientists and business professionals work on the development and commercialisation of sustainable materials. Our principle activity is to develop and commercialise Curran®, a material developed from the extraction of nanocellulose fibres of root vegetables, primarily from sugar beet pulp, a by-product of the sugar industry. Curran® offers exceptional mechanical and rheological properties for numerous applications, such as paints and coatings, inks, personal care, home care, paper, food, concrete, drilling fluids, composites and other potential applications.

Products

Although we are working on many product options for the future, our principle product is a range of materials under the name Curran®. Curran® has a unique set of features and benefits that make it a valuable option for many applications. Some key features of Curran® are that it is light, strong, can form a film, provides sheer-thinning viscosity, has good suspension properties, is stable regardless of pH. It can be used as a composite in its own right or as an additive for many water-based formulations.
