The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Hemicellulose Products


Xylan kan utvinnas ur vedbaserade bioraffinaderier och förädlas till t ex barriärmaterial för livsmedelsförpackningar eller nya biopolymerer.

The hemicellulose xylan can be extracted from wood-based biorefineries and converted into e.g. barrier materials for food packaging or biopolymers with new properties.
