Biobased Industry

Lund University has a large team of researchers focusing on increasing our knowledge of how to create environmentally friendly chemicals, plastics, specific materials, fuel and energy sources from raw biological materials (biomass). Our hope is that our knowledge, which is based on several decades of both fundamental, and more applied research in collaboration with industry, will contribute to a strong, sustainable Swedish bioeconomy.

Here you can learn more about biorefineries, industrial biotechnology, and biofuels. On other pages of the LUBIRC website, we also provide links to our network of scientists, specific research projects, collaborations, and educational efforts.
