This year professor Daniel Söderberg and professor Fredrik Lundell, founders. of Cell are two of the admitted participants who will take part of the program.
– We hope that the program will give us a good environment where we can develop our thinking and how we should act, says Daniel Söderberg in an article at kth.se.
CelluXtreme commercializes a new technology for spinning continuous filaments (fibers) from nanocellulose, a result of research at the Wallenberg Wood Science Center. The technology has been demonstrated on a lab scale, which has shown how it can be used to produce super-strong bio-based fibers that can compete with carbon and glass fibers but without the problem of landfills that these materials have. Another example of use is functionalization to support cell growth, which enables a material that can be used in medical applications. (from kth.se)
