We work on improving the profitability of today's paper industry, and to find new ways using forest and wood fibres. We engineer materials extracted from the forest industry material flows, and refine to provide sustainable alternatives to e.g. plastics. We also develop wood fibres, paper and board in new ways, for example in three-dimensional packaging structures, paper solar cells and light-weight structural composites from fibre-based materials.
Research groups at FSCN
The Bioenergy gasification research group are focused on synthesis gas (“syngas”) production from biomass for automotive fuel production.
The heart of research in complex materials group is in unfolding nature’s beautiful trick as a complex system, and in deploying it to redefine our current material design practices.
The main research interests of the Eco-Chemistry group concerns synthesis, extraction and analysis of natural products.
Research focused on raw material, process technology and new or improved products and qualities.
Our research concerns materials mainly with relevance for the forest industry. We have many projects in the area for Advanced Paper Materials. We have given them the name KM2 all together. KM2 means squarekilometres of areas that can be used for printing functionalities. In the menu on your left hand you can see our research projects in the field.
The research interest of the organic chemistry group focuses around green catalysis and in particular the field of organic catalysis.
The research in our group Surface and Colloid Engineering is focused on the following two main areas; Biomaterials and Metal chelation.
