Production and circulation of PLA from forestry products

The project aims to develop processes as well as bio-based components and products from forest raw materials to enable increased and more sustainable use of bio-based plastics. More specifically, the project aims to develop i) processes for producing the polymer polylactic acid (PLA) from residues from the forest industry; ii) plastics and semi-finished products based on forest-based PLA; iii) a model for a circulation system for certain PLA-based products.
