Research and technical development on renewable polymers and barriers. The results will help minimize cost and environmental impact through efficient use of energy and biomass resources, maximize volume and quality through production efficiency and runnability, meet societal needs with products made from forest biomass, and enable circular economy.
Environmental drivers for renewable materials present an opportunity for forest- and plant-derived plastics. The focus will be on using renewable sources as the raw materials for polymers and barriers. Application techniques and manufacturing techniques for both thermoplastic melts and dispersions will be studied from lab to pilot scale. The goal is to develop high performance materials competitive in relation to their fossil-based or other unrenewable counterparts.
