Novel structural materials with multi-scale fibre components

Project: Business Finland project

Project Details


Goal of the project: Multi-scale fibres (from centimeters to nanoscale, various aspect ratios) for stronger material structures.•  Optimal combination of fines, long fibers, nanocelluloses, polymers and additives to obtain good adhesion in biocomposites and bonding in fibre foam structures.• Novel bio based products for SMEs through innovative raw material combinations (hemp fractions, hydrophobins, lignocellulosic fines, nanocelluloses, wood wool, side streams) and technologies combined with design approach
