Celluforce, the world leader in commercial development of NanoCrystalline Cellulose (NCC), welcomed Janelle Tam, 16, in their plant in Windsor, on July 9th, 2012. Ms.Tam, winner of the Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada 2012 (SBCC), presented her research to the media invited, as well as to CelluForce employees, on the potential of NCC as a powerful antioxidant ingredient for healthcare products. She won first prize for her discovery of an antioxidant compound using NCC.
In addition, Celluforce presented her with a recognition plaque for her implication in using NCC. Tam’s discovery could one day improve healthcare and anti-aging products. The theme of the competition, ‘How will you change the world?’, inspired hundreds of students across Canada to participate in the 2012 SBCC event.
