    Abstract

    Industrial biomaterials 2009-2012 summarises the key findings and inventions developed during the VTT's Industrial biomaterials spearhead programme. In the field of bio-economy, the Industrial biomaterial spearhead programme focused on renewing industry by means of emerging technologies of materials and chemicals based on non-food biomass, including food side streams, agricultural leftovers and natural material waste fractions. This publication focuses on the development of novel biopolymers and production technologies based on lignocellulosics, such as hydrolysed sugars, cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin. The spearhead programme's main achievements include the development of nanocellulose products, new packaging films and barriers from nanocellulose, hemicellulose and lignin, new production methods for hydroxyacids and their polymers like high performance bio-barrier PGA, the development of novel biocomposites for kitchen furniture, and textile fibres from recycled pulp.
