Eco Research Institute (ERI) is a young venture company based in Tokyo. Free of conventions and pre-conceptions,we developed creative innovations of utilizing paper and pulp (both waste and clean virgin depending on applications) differently from mature industries. The secret is technology of grinding paper into micron size particle by which our customers can bring new products quickly and inexpensively to market. Thanks to the support from the government of Japan, including its 100% owned bank, Development Bank of Japan, ERI has succeeded in growing rapidly to a more than U$100 million revenue company and we are expanding the business outside Japan with local partners.
We are looking forward to achieving something dynamic quickly with new business partners and invenstors.

Cellulose Nanofibers are the future for matured industries such as chemical industry and pulp/paper industry.
ERI's paper grinding system has been regarded as one of the best keys to open the commercialization of Cellulose Nanofibers business because of the following attributes.

  1. Unlike other procesing system, ERI has a unique DRY GRINDING system without using liquid chemicals.
  2. The system consists of a set of compact modules that does not require heavy infusion of capital.
  3. One line is expected to produce more than 3,000 tons per year (depending on a paper particle size).
  4. Processing time is much shorter than that of wet systems.
  5. Inexpensive efficient system of ERI can reduce costs of NanoCellulose production dramatically.

It has been said that ERI technology can enhance the efficiency of the current Cellulose Nanofibers production by 1,000%.
