Nanocellulose makes battery recycling more efficient

The electrification of our society has led to  a growing need for efficient and sustainable battery recycling methods. In response to this challenge, researchers at WWSC at KTH have achieved a  breakthrough in battery recycling by using nanocellulose in the metal separation. This innovative approach has the potential to significantly simplify the separation of battery metals from other materials, addressing the pressing demand for eco-friendly recycling processes.

Code of conduct for research groups – Lauren McKee shares her experiences

Academic workplaces can sometimes be challenging, with people with different background and with different expectations working together and sharing space. To prevent conflicts, and to strengthen the positive spirit in her research group, Lauren McKee is one of the PIs that has introduced a code of conduct. In an interview in Chemical World she shares her thoughts and experiences.

Lignin Unleashed: Vibrant Brilliance in Rainbow Photonic Crystals

Lignin is highly interesting as raw material for fossil-free materials, but the brown color can in many cases limit the applications. Now WWSC researchers at Stockholm University has produced a lignin-based material with all the colors of the rainbow by preparing lignin micro/nanoparticles with structural colors.

Yuanyuan Li awarded with Gunnar Sundblad Foundation’s Competence Development Award

WWSC researcher Yuanyuan Li has been awarded the 2023 Gunnar Sundblad Foundation’s Competence Development Award of SEK 700,000 for the development of a new cellulose pulp called Aero-pulp. This new material combines regular paper pulp with nanocellulose, resulting in a material with strong water adsorption and insulation capabilities.
