Approach and goal
  • The project develops novel technologies for production of value-added food packages and composites based on renewable materials and enzymatic or chemo-enzymatic methods. The main goal of the project is to develop generic technologies applicable to a number of products

The main technical and scientific outputs of the project will be:

  • Development of technically and environmentally sound wood fibre based, 100 % biodegradable and renewable materials for load bearing composites and food packaging materials

  • Development of novel enzymatic and chemo-enzymatic methods for modification of lignin-rich wood fibres by using phenoloxidizing enzymes

  • Demonstration the feasibility of composite and food packaging prototypes prepared with novel wood fibres and biopolymers

  • Elucidation of radical reaction mechanisms involved in enzymatic and chemo-enzymatic oxidation as well as their role in improving the adhesion between lignin-rich fibres and biopolymers
