Processing of organosolv fractions for a functionalization and valorization in biobased materials

Optimization of organosolv wood fractioning is performed to obtain pulp containing cellulose, hemicellulose, andlow levels of lignin. The pulp is functionalized to achieve specific fibre properties, such as water stability. The functionalized fibres are evaluated in industrial partners’ products, i.e. biobased foams, to provide valuable feedback for optimization of the functionalization procedures based on industry …

Process-adapted biobased assortments through novel development of the steam explosion process

The aim of the project is to, from softwood bark, develop and provide semi-manufactured industrial commodities with the following properties: a) Low content of process-disturbing/inhibitory substances during steam pretreatment  b) Enhanced enzymatic digestibility  c) High density and manageable properties for storage and transport Project partners: Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Valmet, Bio4Energy
