ABOUT THE PROJECT

Effects of lignin degradation on paper-based materials in extreme conditions

In this project, we will explore the effect of lignin degradation on cellulose-based materials listed above in two “extreme” contexts: during long-term environmental degradation and during composting.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Targeted research project - Economic, environmental and social aspects of wood processing and use and bound carbon

Innorenew CoE, the Forestry Institute of Slovenia and ICP will upgrade the required data collection system in Slovenia and prepare a model that will enable more criteria (potential sales revenues, potential GHG emission savings, necessary investments, etc.) optimization of wood quantities for processing throughout forestry, timber and paper sector.
