FibRe is a Vinnova-funded competence centre with two academic partners (KTH and Chalmers) and some 20 companies and public organisations. The aim of the centre is to develop new plastic-like materials through the least possible modification of biomass. The knowledge and expertise built within the centre will make it possible to replace our current fossil-based plastics with greener alternatives.
Chalmers Industriteknik has a coordinator role in the centre with extra focus on the participation of the industrial partners and activities in the centre. The overall goal of our role is to reduce the distance between industry and academia and to ensure, as far as possible, that the research results are applied.
