Visit by KAW at WWSC KTH

Together with representatives from the central management of KTH, Peter Wallenberg Jr, Sara Mazur, and Axel Wallenberg from KAW visited WWSC KTH in March.

Welcomed by the WWSC Director Eva Malmström who gave a short introduction to the center, the visitors from KAW and the KTH management were then guided through the WWSC facilities. In the labs they got to see demo presentations by some of our fantastic PhD students.

The demonstrations included a tour of our state-of-the-art semi-pilot cooking lab, IRL preparation of superstrong nanocellulose filaments, fully biobased wood adhesives, and transparent wood.

The visitors got to see examples of transparent wood from different wood spaces. The transparent wood is now fully biobased.

The level of engagement was very high, both by the visitors and the PhD students, which led to lots of interesting discussions and exchanges of ideas.
