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.

Våra forskningsgrupper (på engelska):

Biobased Materials Technology

The BIOMAT group lead by Prof. Thaddeus Maloney carries out research related to the development of next generation fiber products. Our target is to develop material-based technologies which enable the renewal of the paper and board industries.

Biobased Colloids and Materials (BiCMat)

BiCMat group led by Prof. Orlando Rojas works toward supporting global sustainable development through research on the fundamental and utilization aspects of renewable resources, including lignocellulose, proteins and other biopolymers. Our research aims to discover competitive alternatives for fossil materials.

Bioproduct Chemistry

The Bioproduct Chemistry group is led by Prof. Monika Österberg. The group works on the development of renewable, high added-value materials based on lignocellulosics. Our research is especially focused on understanding interfacial properties using atomic force microscopy (AFM, imaging and force measurements), quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D), and surface plasmon resonance (SPR), among other techniques.

Clean Technologies

Clean Technologies group led by Prof. Olli Dahl develops sustainable industrial processes for treatment of waste water and industrial residues.

Clean Technologies Reseach Group

Materials Chemistry of Cellulose

The distinct emphasis of the group led by Prof. Eero Kontturi is set on interfacial phenomena: one of the main lines of research involves observing and manipulating cellulosic materials in confined 2D space by using a surface science approach.
