PhD project: Melt processing of Lignocellulose-based materials
Supervisor: Dr. Giada Lo Re
Dissertation planned to: 2024, September
My main line PhD research will focus on melt processing and characterization of lignocellulosic materials, more precisely modified cellulose-based materials. As a sideline project, I also work in exploring new possibilities of melt processing of lignin using suitable bio-plasticizers and additives.
Research theme: 1–wood components, 3–material forming, 4–material concepts
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
