Innventia, SP och Swedish ICT har gått samman i RISE för att bli en starkare forsknings- och innovationspartner för näringsliv och samhälle.
Under 2017 kommer att vara en av flera webbplatser inom RISE. Besök gärna för mer information om RISE.

Brave new wood – Biobased materials

New opportunities for fibre based materials through the development of material solutions that allow free shaping will be investigated.

What is the research programme area about? 

Our approach is to take the old forest-based paper components and put them together in new ways aiming at new 3D structures. New material concepts based on wood fibres and, in a longer perspective, also on wood-derived polymers, remains at the centre of our research. This involves, for example, cellulose structures and modification, material identity and sustainability.

What benefit will the research bring?

Industry needs to find new ways to exploit old raw materials. New fibre-based material solutions that allow free shaping could be an interesting possibility and applicable to construction materials or injection moulded products, among other things.
