The research in Fibre and Particle Engineering research group covers applications from the traditional industrial fields such as pulp and paper, minerals and mining, biocomposites and recycling  to the novel applications of micronized particles and fibres such as films, barriers or pharmaceutical products. 

Main projects in the three focus areas are:

Cellulose research group
