    What is cellulose?

    Cellulose is a polysaccharide, insoluble fiber, the main building material of higher plants. Cellulose consists of wood fibers, the walls of the stems of various plants, husks of cereals, cotton wool and much more.

    The word pulp in French means cell. Despite this, in nature, cellulose is a long, solid filament.

    What is cellulose for?

    The entire cotton industry is based on the processing and use of pulp. Cotton fabric, paper and cotton wool, which we are used to, consists of plant cellulose. Today’s fashionable linen, hemp fabrics are also composed of this plant material.

    Cellulose is a durable and elastic material, which determines its active use in human life. Cellulose can withstand temperatures of about two hundred degrees Celsius, but the ignition burns well.

    The common traditional adobe houses and modern thatched eco-homes are based on straw, which consists of cellulose.With proper care, such buildings are durable and have high thermal insulation properties.

    In the pulp industry, this material is produced by boiling wood chips in an acidic or alkaline solution.

    Artificial fur, smokeless powder, plastics, varnishes, film and photographic films are made from purified cellulose.
