  • Background: Cellulose is a common material used in numerous medical veterinary and agricultural products. Oxidized cellulose is a biodegradable form of this product that suffers from a poor solubility in water and common organic solvents. Cellulose esters are more soluble in water and thus more commonly used as pharmaceutical excipients but lack some of the useful drug delivery characteristics of oxidized cellulose. Combining the properties of both of these reactive groups produces a superior drug delivery mechanism.

Some examples are ashes from waste incineration and combustion of biofuels, contaminated soils, various waste products from the industry, waste for landfill from households and businesses, asbestos and sulphide soil. We see this as exciting wastes, often with great potential of recycling. We work with flexible solutions, in order to recycle as much as possible.
