Sodalitas is an innovative start-up that works in the field of nanotechnologies for the manufacture of innovative products with high technological value and high added value.

The Group

PROVIDENTIA is part of CLS FOUNDATION, a wide organization which promote and sustain charitable works for the benefit of the needy, paying particular attention to psychophysical disability.
CLS PROVIDENTIA, a limited liability Social Enterprise, entirely belongs to CLS FOUNDATION.

Nano-Material: the product, which can be either natural or created specifically, contains particles in which at least one external dimension is within a range of 1 nm – 100 nm.


CLS PROVIDENTIA makes use of:

personnel with extensive managerial experience
scientific technicians for development and promotion of the market
academic researchers with outstanding experience in the field of non-particles, and the development and management of technological production processes
back office personnel for administrative aspects and the management of human resources
The aim of CLS Sodalitas is the development, production and sale of cellulose nanoparticles (CNs), made from agricultural biomass, rubble and cellulose-based waste and by-products of the paper, textiles and agri-food industries.
Why we should invest in the production of Cellulose Nanoparticles

The nanocellulose market is considered to be undergoing a strong expansion and many companies and advanced research centres in Europe, America and Canada, and in certain emerging countries, are working on the production of various types of CNs and are focusing on their growing use.

In Italy, on the other hand, production activities of this kind have still to be launched on an industrial scale, and it is felt that a similar activity could be extremely useful and advantageous for two fundamental reasons:

Rather big amounts of cellulose-rich biomasses are available in the Country, coming both from agriculture and food industry activities, which could be usefully exploited in the production of CNs.
the raw materials for the production of paper and cardboard represent one of the main import items weighing on Italy’s commercial budget; consequently, reduced use in exchange for better performance could generate consistent economic advantages.
