Ecopulp Finland's role in the project
- The development of a new recycling process that allows the production of a specialty pulp that can be subsequently converted into MFC with minimum energy input.
- The testing and up-scaling of the solutions resulting from such operations.
INNOBITE contributes to the development of sustainable consumption and production patterns through the development of new technological solutions based on the efficient use of natural resources. The INNOBITE project will transform urban and agricultural residues into high performing, resource efficient products for the emerging Green Construction sector. The project is supported by two innovative ideas:
(1) Adding value to the inorganic fraction of wheat straw.
(2) Obtaining cellulose nanofibres (MFC) out of highly recycled paper.
Once isolated via environmentally friendly processes, these two renewable compounds will be used as high-performance additives providing unique properties to a new series of biocomposites for use in construction applications.
