Creating sustainability through materials and systems

Our research contributes to sustainable use of natural resources by creating smart solutions that are based on and combine our expertise in different fields. These range from fundamental materials science to the production and use of superior materials and (bio)catalytic systems, bioeconomics and circular economics, cleantech, ICT, and open data solutions.

Multidisciplinary research activities in the focus area are coordinated by the Kvantum Institute. Research is conducted mainly in the Faculty of Science, Faculty of Technology, and Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.

Meet the researcher

Henrikki Liimatainen´s research focuses on new nanostructured biomaterials and chemicals derived from lignocellulose - especially fabrication of nano- and microcelluloses, their hybrid structures with inorganics/biomaterials and their applications.

Material that harvests energy from three sources is proven in practice
