Listen Up! Small Talk About Big Ideas in Nanocellulose

Jefferson Public Radio recently aired a segment on the many possibilities nanocellulose could bring to their local community in rural northern California. The station’s listeners live in the vicinity of a feasibility study led by the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL). The study is looking at building a nanocellulose production facility and what that could mean for jobs, economics, and forest health.

Listen here as FPL Assistant Director Alan Rudie and Dan Blessing, a natural resources staff officer from the Klamath National Forest, describe the pursuit of nanocellulose technology and how it can benefit forests and people alike.
