The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Renewable polymers and barriers

The proposal for The Bioeconomy Research Programme 2018–2020 consists of a number of programme areas containing a variety of research topics. The programme areas each address mutual questions and opportunities of great interest to a consortium of RISE customers. All programme areas are planned for three years.

Environmental drivers for renewable materials present an opportunity for forest- and plant derived plastics. The focus will be on using renewable sources as the raw materials for polymers and barriers. Application techniques and manufacturing techniques for both thermoplastic melts and dispersions will be studied from lab to pilot scale. The goal is to develop high performance materials competitive in relation to their fossil-based or other unrenewable counter parts.
