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.

Lignin value chain

Efficient utilisation of wood raw materials and the development of extended product portfolios including value-added sidestream products will be adressed.

What is the research programme area about?

We will investigate suitable lignin production conditions, lignin product properties and conversion techniques and conditions. The primary target is the development of low-cost carbon fibre for use in structural applications of general performance grade, but the potential in other applications will also be studied.

What benefit will the research bring?

Value-added side-stream products can be of great importance for the industry to stay competitive and viable. The main side stream in the kraft process is black liquor from which lignin can be isolated.
