Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific


Enzyme technologies provide tools for adding value to fibre based products. Presently, lignocellulose modifying enzymes are used for improving pulp and paper processing. In future, these enzymes are expected to be increasingly used for modification and transformation reactions improving the properties of fibre based products. (4 refs.)
