Biomaterials and Chemicals

As fossil fuel stores are depleted, there is greater demand for alternative technologies. Research in this area will develop technologies based upon the cost effective harvesting of biomass. Applying technologies in the wood and pulp and paper sectors will require better fermentation and extraction including rapid and efficient processing of residues such as short cellulose fibre.

We are currently building this network through a consultative process. For more information, please consult our next workshop or contact us.
