Institutionen för bioprodukter och bioteknik

Institutionen för bioprodukter och bioteknik (Bio2) ligger i framkant vad gäller teknik för skogsprodukter och den senaste bioteknologin.

Verksamheten vid Bio2 leder i slutändan till innovativa produkter och lösningar för tillämpningar inom allt från byggnation och textilier till biomaterial, energi och biomedicin.

Forskning

Forskningen vid Institutionen för bioprodukter och bioteknik (Bio2) fokuserar på produkter som härrör sig från naturen genom grön kemi eller biotekniska metoder. Institutionens kärnkompetenser omfattar syntetisk biologi, biokemisk och bioteknisk bearbetning, kemi av lignocellulosamaterial, förbehandling och fraktionering av biomassa, enhetens processer nedströms samt karaktärisering och analys av material.

Bio2 är internationellt känd för sin multidisciplinära teknikutbildning i digitaliserade och online-inlärningsmiljöer.
