The lecture will describe the Lab2Fab scale up of using a new sustainable material like Nanocellulose for being used as a coating on paper to provide barrierer function and to cast the NC onto a release liner to produce a transparent film of NC to replace PET.
The processes have been developed in the European Horizon2020 project and include coating technologies and drying technologies which had been modified to reach the requested results.
Coatema developed here the overall production line concept and demonstrated the process on a Click&Coat system.
