Researchers at Aalto University are looking for new ways to use wood

New scientific ideas can revitalize one of Finland’s traditional economic engines, forests.

Demand for paper is declining as newspapers are closing their doors. But the researchers at Aalto University School of Chemical Engineering are looking far beyond paper. They are trying to inject new life into the forest products field. The focus of the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems is to find new and better ways to use wood.

Activities in the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems result in innovative products and solutions for applications ranging from construction and textiles to energy and biomedicine. Research groups in the department work collaboratively with strong partners from industry and academia on transdisciplinary research themes including materials, chemistry, synthetic biology, biotechnology and nanosciences.
