Welcome to ArboraNano

ArboraNano was the Canadian Forest NanoProducts Network conceived by FPInnovations and NanoQuébec. An important component in the strategy of the Canadian forest-products industry, ArboraNano created new business opportunities for the Canadian economy by using Canada’s renewable forest resources to manufacture new products with superior performance attributes.

This Business-Led Network of Centres of Excellence (BL-NCE) assembled an unusual mix of partners from industries that have not conventionally collaborated together in the past to create a multi-industry and multi-disciplinary R&D team. ArboraNano involved the collaboration of the forest sector manufacturing industry, the aerospace, automotive, medical, composites, coatings and chemical industries along with the support and resources of various universities and research institutes.

ArboraNano was supported by the federal government through a Networks of Centers of Excellence program.
