Cellulose is an important structural component of the primary cell wall of green plants, many forms of algae and the oomycetes.

In the industrial and industry context, cellulose refers to a natural polymer made of repeating units of glucose that is the primary structural component of plant cell walls. Cellulose is one of the most abundant organic materials on earth and is used as a raw material in a variety of industries and applications, including:

  • Pulp and Paper Industry: Cellulose is the main raw material used to produce paper, cardboard, and other paper products.

  • Textile Industry: Cellulose is used as a raw material for the production of cellulose fiber and rayon, which are used in textiles and clothing.

  • Pharmaceutical Industry: Cellulose is used as a filler, binder, and excipient in the production of various pharmaceutical products.

  • Food Industry: Cellulose is used as a food ingredient, such as a thickener, stabilizer, or fiber source in processed foods.

  • Construction Industry: Cellulose is used as an insulation material in buildings and as a raw material in the production of building materials such as fiberboard.

  • Chemical Industry: Cellulose is used as a raw material in the production of various chemical products, such as cellulose ethers, cellulose acetate, and cellulose nitrate.
