Rethink Trees in Less Than Four Minutes

Having trouble grasping nanotechnology as it applies to the paper industry? Or, do you need help in getting coworkers or customers to understand the nature of trees that make them uniquely suitable for renewable nanotechnology? Do you have about four minutes?

Developed by a team of industry volunteers to raise awareness of the potential of trees using nanotechnology, a four-minute video was developed to highlight the many current uses of tree fiber in countless products, as well as the potential for new products and new uses realized through nanotechnology. This video is available for viewing and downloading.

Thanks to the following companies for their contributions which made this video possible: Alabama Center for Paper and Bioresources Engineering, ArborGen, Fibria, Georgia-Pacific, Nalco, Verso, Kemira, NewPage, MWV, Sappi, International Paper, IPST @ Georgia Tech, U.S. Forest Service.
