Abstract:SweTree Technologies is a plant and forest biotechnology company providing products and technologies to improve the productivity and performance properties of seedlings, wood and fiber for forestry, pulp & paper, packaging, hygiene, textile and other fiber related industries. We have established a method of producing a material consisting of a cellulose template with magnetic nanoparticles incorporated into the structure. The new magnetic nanoparticle cellulose material with a network of cellulose nanofibers as scaffold can be used for the production of new functional nano-materials.
