Plasticization and partial depolymerization of lignocellulose-based materials  

This project is a part of the competence center FibRe. This particular PhD student project aims to plasticize the lignin in the cell walls. The first part will be to extract lignin from wood and wheat straw, and to evaluate how different plasticizers affect the material properties. This will then be extrapolated to lignocellulose-based fibers.

Design av fuktokänsliga biobaserade syrgasbarriärer genom att systemtiskt korrelera biopolymernas molekylstrukturna till barriärfunktionen

The total Swedish export income from packaging and forest-based products is more than 11%. Our forest is a renewable resource that can be used to produce and develop more sustainable packaging materials with decreased climate stress compared to today’s fossil ones or aluminum foil. But, the replacement of fossil based materials with bio-based counterparts is …
