This Program seeks new technology for converting lignocellulosic materials into biopolymers and biochemicals and other derivatives. Research includes biodegradable plastics from phytomass, bioadhesives from tree barks, biocoating, cellulose modification etc.
This program focuses on economical approach of biopulping and biobleaching processes particularly for non-woody materials and agrofibres. Research on chemical modification of these fibres is also conducted. Development of specialty paper products, enhancement of linerboard using environmental friendly technologies. Characterization of fibres from various resources is also undertaken. Study on pollution control for pulp and paper, biorefinery process, waste minimization, fuel recovery, toxicity management and waste water treatment are also included.
