Kumppanuusmalli - Furfural-derived Resins and Biocomposites
- Associate professor, University LecturerJuha Heiskanen
FurBio project focus on research and development of novel furfural-derived resins and biobased fiber reinforced biocomposites in international cooperation. The project aims to produce new information about preparation, properties, and commercial potential of biobased resins. The especial target is to develop materials with competitive properties compared to currently available commercial fossil-based resins. The concept of the invention will be validated in relevant environment to create an efficient starting point for commercialization track with participating companies. In addition to biocomposite application, the novel bioderived resins can be potentially utilized in other commonly encountered resin applications such as paints, coatings, and adhesives.
