Departments and infrastructures

The research at the School of Chemical Engineering focuses on forest products technologies, chemical engineering, industrial biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology, metals and minerals processing and energy technology. The school has two special research infrastructures: bioeconomy infrastructure that enables research from molecular level to biobased technology concepts, and raw materials research infrastructure, that supports the research of circular economy targeting to closed metallurgical and hydrometallurgical processes and inorganic energy materials.

To learn more about the impact we make, get to know our two infrastructures and three departments:

Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems

The Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems (Bio2) is at the forefront of forest products technologies and cutting-edge biotechnology.
