Processing & Mechanics – Bio-based Polymer Composite Materials

Treesearch research themes:

Project partners:



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 material from functionalization to macro scale test and characterization for evaluation by industries such as packaging and consumer products.
