Welcome to Wood Chemistry and Pulp Technology
Pulp technology deals with the processes and techniques used to expose the fibers from wood. The fibers are mainly used as raw material for pulp and paper, but also other products such as the pharmaceutical industry. Wood chemistry investigate the chemical reactions that occur in these steps, as well as the morphological and chemical structure of the fibers of wood and products.

Eco-friendly antibacterial fibres discovered at KTH wood chemistry and pulp technology
PhD Josefin Illergård has together with Professor Monica Ek and Professor Lars Wågberg (Fibre technology) discovered a new antibacterial material which minimises the environmental impact and the risk for development of antibacterial resistance. A article of the work was recently published by KTH. You can find it(in Swedish), bt international media did also notice the work of the KTH researchers, so an English version of the article can be found .
The project has been a PhD project, 'Biointeractive fibres'. Contactfor more information!
