Research highlights in industrial biomaterials

Abstract

Green VTT has commitment to develop technologies for the bio-economy to benefit society through prosperity through less environmental burden. Industrial biomaterials spearhead program is targeting new value added applications on non-food related biomass in the fields of marked industrial importance, such as packaging, composites and appliances. The development is based on long research activity in the fields of biomass fractionation and converting as well deep expertise on the material sciences, converting technologies and application. This Research Highlights focuses on novel biopolymers from forest industry side-streams that have been developed for bio-packing applications, like oxygen and grease barrier materials for fibre webs. Development of translucent and mouldable fibre based packaging and modification and regeneration of cellulose enabled new openings. The main achievement is, however, the nanocellulose development that has progressed to the international top level, enabling VTT partners to move to the industrial scale test runs and pilot decisions. Research and development in the area of industrial biomaterials has a positive impact on chemical, forest and packing industry.
