Processing & Mechanics – Bio-based Polymer Composite Materials

With this project, we aim to advance the understanding, synthesis, manufacturing and modelling of biocomposites. In particular, we target polymers reinforced with cellulose fibers that have been grafted with cellulose nano crystals, the wood-based cellulose fibers and nano crystals are an important resource from the Swedish forest industry. The idea is to scale up a …

All wood composites

Lightweight structural composites are a great way to reduce overall weight. Bio-based composites are used to replace fossil-based materials in non-structural applications. This project will develop new lightweight structural materials that are comprised of bio-based constituents. One of the most important aspects to understand when developing new composites is the interface functionalization chemistry and its impact on rheological …
