Smart biomass for future materials

Today we typically refer bio-based materials to modern materials that have undergone more extensive processing. We often think about examples such as engineered wood, cellulose, casein, cotton, polylactic acid, starch, oils, etc. However, there are other possibilities, the biomass itself can be altered and designed de novo to produce valuable products: we can “grow” new raw-materials tailor-made for specific end-products, we can also produce valuable materials by mimicking nature. At this meeting at KSLA, researchers mainly from SLU will present their bio-based research initiatives.
