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.


Innventia, together with Södra and seven other organisations, has initiated an EU research project that aims to increase investments in development for manufacturing carbon fibre-reinforced plastic composites from kraft lignin. This initiative is of great significance in terms of access to bio-based products in a future bioeconomy.

GreenLight carbon fibre

In brief, the research project involves manufacturing carbon fibre-reinforced plastic composite with good performance and at a lower price than is currently the case. Lignin from wood is used as the main carbon fibre raw material. The aim is to demonstrate components for the automotive industry by tailoring the raw material, the manufacturing process for carbon fibres and different manufacturing techniques in which the focus is on replacing traditional, heavier materials in cars with lightweight composites.  

Innventia, part of RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, is hosting the project and coordinating its realisation.
