Group description

Wood fibers and wood macromolecules are central for today’s materials biorefinery. The current challenges of raw material and energy scarcity call for solutions that make processing more efficient and enable to use all fractions of the biomass. The lignocellulose chemistry group focuses on processing and utilization of wood fibers and wood hemicelluloses.

Group leader Tiina Nypelö (Associate Professor) holds a position also at Chalmers University of Technology. työskentelee professorina myös Chalmersin teknillisessä yliopistossa. She is active in European Polysaccharide Network of Excellence. Nypelö teaches in courses CHEM-E1500 and CHEM-E1600.
