Better biomass utilisation by improved understanding of decay mechanisms in wood
Financing: 230 000 SEK
The long-term aims:
1) to have collaboration between the research groups in Scandinavia working on characterisation and understanding decay mechanisms in wood.
2) to establish a common platform for researchers focusing on avoiding decay in wood structures and researchers focusing on boosting degradation for biorefinery purposes.
3) to generate new knowledge about degradation mechanisms of wood and strategies for curbing or boosting them.
The goal for 2018 is to integrate and coordinate the research effort of three major Scandinavian research institutions focusing on decay characterisation in order to advance the interregional collaboration within this topic.
