There is a strong development in new materials from biomass. New knowledge from a life cycle analysis perspective and in material development and product design are needed in this context. The course also covers structure-property relationships in biofibers, biopolymers, and biocomposites based on cellulose. In addition, biocomposites in nature are treated such as bone, wood, insect cuticle, teeth etc are discussed since they offer interesting models for sophisticated materials and product design.
