Advanced materials and products

The potential of the crystalline structure of cellulose has not been fully exploited. Our research will turn nanocellulose into the next revolutionary nanomaterial, the next “graphene”.

The inherent properties of lignocellulosic building blocks can provide ground-breaking possibilities in completely new areas in the future.

FinnCERES spins its research from the driving forces that are changing the future: How to increase the demand for more sustainable products and systems? How to integrate lignocelluloses in different scales and contexts, in textiles and electronics?

Project examples:

  • Biochars for energy harvesting and storage applications
  • Bands and optical properties of nanocellulose
  • Functionalised Biocelsol textiles
