Concept

The vision of FibRe:

Our vision is a sustainable society where thermoplastic fossil-based plastics are replaced by lignocellulose-based materials. 

What will FibRe do?

FibRe aims to undertake several approaches to pursue minimal chemical modification of the lignocellulose to comply with efficient atom economy, and where the final material still is degradable under biological conditions.

FibRe also aims at developing novel or improved characterization methods to allow for accurate characterization on various length scales to reliantly describe where a chemical modification has taken place and what effect the modification has on the material properties.

Further, FibRe will develop novel scientific understanding regarding thermal processing of lignocellulosic materials and their modified counterparts. As an ultimate goal FibRe aims to develop novel methods that based on the materials structures allows prediction of process parameters to increase the processing efficiency.

How will FibRe do this?

FibRe suggests a new way of working. In FibRe, all project partners, industrial as well as academic, work in an integrated way with short communication pathways and frequent interactions. By the holistic project approach, we strive to become the first choice for any academic or industrial partner interested in thermoplastic lignocellulose-based materials.​
