The transparent wood is an example that the magazine Forskning & Framsteg brings up. The picture is taken in a different context.
The article focuses on the expression “Everything that is made of oil can be made of forest” and then shows exciting examples of both research and development projects. Participating in the article are WWSC doctoral student Celine Montari and Professor Lars Berglund, who present the now completely bio-based transparent wood.
The article highlights that there is really a lot going on in the area. And according to Professor Lars Berglund, it is possible to do even more.
