LignoCity and the Academy

Publicerat 5 maj, 2021

Research is important for the development of most things. It is no exception when it comes to lignin. During this webinar, we take a closer look at the academia’s involvement in the development of a circular Biobased Economy.

Welcome to a webinar were we take a closer look at Karlstads universitys Pro2BE. It is a research environment focusing on the transformation from the current economic-technological culture. It is based on the consumption of non-renewable resources, to a bioeconomy based on sustainable and environmentally friendly renewable resources and on the development of the forest industry.

We also get to meet students at Lunds university who will present their interesting master theses about lignin. To carry out the studies, they have used lignin from the test bed LignoCity in Bäckhammar.
