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 […]
This project supported by the FORMAS and Interreg Sverige-Norge specifically focuses on design and preparation of cellulose-based nanocomposites with added functionalities such as e.g. barrier, antimicrobial, catalytic and electronic properties, starting from water-based solutions of wood cellulose.
