Broad-based cooperation multiplying the value of Finnish wood

Researchers are working together to develop new biomaterial applications within the Design Driven Value Chains in the World of Cellulose (DWoC) 2.0 project coordinated by VTT. The DWoC project is seeking new design-driven applications for cellulose and is developing related technology as well as exploring new ways to create value in cellulose-based ecosystems. These new materials and innovations can replace fossil-based raw materials in textile products, interior decoration elements and car interior materials. The DWoC project aims to share information about the potential of cellulose materials and to strengthen the broad-based collaboration network both in Finland and the rest of the world. In order to achieve the national objectives the participation of operators in various sectors is needed, including funders, traditional as well as new companies, research institutions and universities. There is a strong belief in Finland's future as one of the superpowers in the generation of a new cellulose industry.
