RISE PFI participated at the 3rd International Workshop on Biorefinery of Lignocellulosic Materials (IWBLCM 2023)

Sandra Rodriguez Fabia presented on the reinforcing potential of kraft pulp fibres and the respective cellulose nanofibrils in both high- and low-density polyethylene at the workshop, held in Cordoba, Spain.

Kristin Syverud delivered a keynote presentation on the versatile applications of nanocellulose dispersions in industrial fluids, foodstuff, and in the medical field. She presented research done at RISE PFI together with collaborators during many years and emphasized the importance of tailoring nanocellulose properties to specific applications.


The presentations were:

Sandra Rodriguez Fabia, Chiara Zarna, Gary Chinga Carrasco: “The reinforcing ability of kraft pulp fibres and the corresponding cellulose nanofibrils in high- and low-density polyethylene”

Kristin Syverud: “Application of nanocellulose dispersions in industrial fluids, foodstuff, and the medical field”
