From fundamental research to pilot scale – the material that can replace polystyrene foam

Professor Lars Wågberg tells kth.se about the first steps and the research that led to a foam material, by then made of nanocellulose. The first steps were taken as a doctoral thesis within the research center Wallenberg Wood Science Center and in 2012, doctoral student Nicholas Cervin was able to present his thesis. – It …

Article in Forskning & Framsteg highlights new materials from wood

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 …

Research on materials from the forest in Vetenskapens värld

In the program Vetenskapens värld (Swedish for World of Science), a series is currently ongoing on the forest’s and the forestry’s impact in an environmental and climate perspective. The program series highlights various aspects of the subject, and as an example of what can be done with the forest in the future, WWSC’s director Eva …

Next generation transparent wood is here – 100% biobased

Much has happened since the first publication on the transparent wood; a bio composite that combines transparent properties with the strength of wood. Since 2016 the material has been given special properties such as thermo-regulation and other intelligent properties. Now a new milestone has been reached: fully bio-based transparent wood, made with green chemistry. – We …

conductive cellulose yarn is used in a sewing machine

Electronically conductive cellulose-yarn developed by WWSC researchers

The yarns were produced by a roll-to-roll coating process with an ink based on the biocompatible PEDOT:PSS and could be used in a household sewing machine. The findings were recently published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. “This cellulose thread could lead to garments with built-in electronic, smart functions, made from non-toxic, renewable and natural materials,” …
