Sammanfattning : The bio-economy has been put forward as a strategy to increase economic growth without this leading to increased emissions of greenhouse gases. A key concept behind the bio-economy is the increased use of biomass for applications such as the production of bio-based chemicals and materials but also an increased importance for biotechnology and biorefinery systems in the production of these products.

Sammanfattning : The role of forest biomass as a replacement for fossil fuels and products is becoming increasingly prominent as a means to mitigate climate change. To guide a sustainable transition towards a forest-based bio-economy, it is important that advantages and disadvantages of forest products are assessed, to ensure that the products deliver environmental impact reduction. LÄS MER

However, it is not yet clear if the high-reaching aspirations of the bio-based economy can be realized. LÄS MER
4. Identifying drivers and barriers for market growth within the industry producing wooden multi-family houses : Land allocation process for future growth
Sammanfattning : At present, Sweden is experiencing a housing shortage, which Swedish authorities expect to continue until at least 2025. Producers of wooden multi-family houses have a relatively small market share compared to those who use traditional building materials. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Forest biomass is expected to play an increasingly important role in tomorrow´s global bio-economy as one of the main renewable sources of materials, chemicals and energy. In the framework of the biorefinery concept, the forestry industry is looking for new processes to utilize several fractions in the biomass (cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignin etc. LÄS MER
