NAT Enters in Short-Term Agreement with Georgia Pacific
We are pleased to announce that we’ve entered into a short term CRAiLAR® Flax fiber supply agreement with Georgia-Pacific LLC (GP) beginning April 2011 to support evaluation of processing CRAiLAR flax fiber in formed materials.
Recently completing product-forming trials using CRAiLAR flax fibers, the supply agreement will allow for GP to purchase CRAiLAR flax fiber from NAT for additional product testing.
“We are excited to explore this aspect of possible development,” said Ken Barker, CEO of NAT. “Our partnership with GP has proven to be a truly collaborative effort. We believe this step is important to identifying potential applications of our technology beyond those we are already exploring.”
