- Country of manufactureUkraine
Purpose and scope
Microcrystalline cellulose made of domestic vegetative raw materials (flax and hemp) is intended for the production of solid dosage forms at the the pharmaceutical industry enterprises as an alternative to imported more precious pulp from coniferous wood and cotton.
Comparison with world counterparts

Intellectual Property Protection Status
Patent of Ukraine is received. A license agreement has been concluded for the use of the patent.
The enterprises of the domestic pharmaceutical industry annually buy dozens of tons of imported microcrystalline cellulose. The production of microcrystalline cellulose from domestic vegetable raw materials partially solves the problem of import substitution, reduces the cost of final products by 20 - 30% , increases the competitiveness of production of domestic medicinal pills.
The state of readiness of development
The normative documentation has been developed, experimental prototypes have been implemented and tested
