Wood Chemistry and Pulp Technology
Our division is a part of the Department of Fibre and Polymer Technology at KTH. 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.
