The RISE Bioeconomy and Health division, which includes MoRe Research, is organizing the international conference Nordic Wood Biorefinery Conference (NWBC) next year.
There, the latest discoveries and innovations, as well as future needs and challenges, concerning bio-based materials, chemicals and products from biorefineries will be presented and discussed.
The conference takes place October 15-17 in Örnsköldsvik - Save the date!
The conventional materials we mostly use for building insulation are based on fossil-based compounds. We need to replace them with greener alternatives.
The project will develop green processes for bioactive fiber functionalization that contain forest-based resources, which will then be used for high-performance materials. In the future, these materials need to be biodegradable in order to live up to future environmental requirements and Swedish bio-based economy and society.
Atanu Kumar Das is a new researcher at MoRe Research with a solid educational background in forestry and pulp and paper. He has previously worked at SLU and has a position at MoRe with a focus on the processing of raw materials.
Avik De is a research and development engineer at MoRe research. He is working on the development of green insulation materials for buildings. As a part of his project, he is currently working at Luleå University of Technology as a guest researcher. His project is a WISE (Wallenberg Initiative Materials Science for Sustainability) industrial project funded by Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. He is also a WISE industrial postdoc.
