Industrial Biomaterials Spearhead Programme - IndBioMat

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


    Industrial biomaterial development enables sustainable material technology based on biomass refining and reduces oil dependence. Special emphasis is placed on the reorientation of forest industries in selected arenas. Combining emerging, modified natural polymers and biopolymers from non-food process side streams with nanomaterials, such as nanocellulose, creates a platform of hybrid materials for innovative industrial products such as packaging, appliances and construction materials. The main trends in this technology are the application of renewable resources, recycling, reducing environmental impact, and providing sustainable product differentiation and generally acceptable user-friendly products.
