From Wood to Sustainable Biocomposites

The overall objective of WoBiCo is to generate knowledge and technology enabling sustainable production and use of thermomechanical pulp (TMP) fibres and cellulose nanofibrils (CNF)-based thermoplastic biocomposites. In addition we will develop solutions to use fibre and paper production waste as a source for polymer production.
