Our battle to fight climate change drives industries to create better, more efficient and entirely new ways to utilise bio-based raw materials.
Water interactions are at the heart of bio-based materials engineering. Novel, feasible material families with potentially new applications can be developed by exploiting these interactions.
Lignocellulosic fractions offer excellent potential to create materials superior to their fossil counterparts. Our focus is to find truly novel and unique bio-based materials of the future.
Bio-based materials offer new solutions in electronics, including harvesting, converting and storing energy applications. For example, biochars could be used to replace rare metals in solar cells.
