Plastic precursors from agro and forestry residues

In a recently established Business Finland project - SynbioPro - researchers at VTT and Tampere University are working on turning agricultural and forestry residues into platform chemicals which could replace fossil based precursors for plastics


The project aims to create solutions throughout the value chain in collaboration with the industrial partners Neste, Kemira, Fortum, Olfactomics and Mirka.
