The combination of lignin and electronics – opportunities and challenges

April 27, 2023

Welcome to a webinar where we meet RISE researchers Jesper Edberg and Hjalmar Granberg, who will talk about what happens when you combine the competence of lignocellulose with that of electronics. What are the possibilities and challenges, and how can the area of biobased and green electronics impact our future society?  

March 16, 2023

Welcome to a two-part webinar. First, we meet Andreas Bengtsson, researcher at RISE, who will let us know about the potential of biobased carbon fibers from cellulose and lignin. Thereafter Åsa Östlund will let us know more about the company Tree To Textile, offering a new technology to enable a new sustainable man-made cellulosic textile fiber.

February 24, 2023

Welcome to a webinar about, among other things, the potential of X-ray characterizations for lignin, as well as the potential of the new material Grapholium™ made from lignin. We are visited by Dr. Shun Yu, researcher specialist in X-ray scattering/spectroscopy at RISE, and Anna Carlsson, CTO of Bright Day Graphene.
