RISE PFIFocus areasBiopolymers and Biocomposites

Biopolymers and biocomposites from land- and marine-based biomass is a strategic research field at RISE PFI

Key aspects in this respect are the sustainable utilization of land- and marine-based biomass and industrial side streams that will form the basis for novel and innovative products, of industrial and societal relevance.

RISE PFI is constantly establishing new projects with Norwegian and international industry within construction, infrastructure, automotive, food and beverage packaging, health applications and additive manufacturing (3D printing). Several initiatives related to biopolymers, biocomposites and 3D (bio)printing have been established, and in close cooperation with R&D and industrial partners. Some initiatives include: i) biopolymers for the food and biomedical sector, ii) development of novel and sustainable biocomposite materials, iii) polymeric inks for 3D printing of structural products and iv) biobased materials as replacement of fossil-based plastics. These areas are important in order to advance a sustainable development within the current bio- and circular economy.
