Biotechnology and microbial control

Today continuous product and process development is required for higher productivity and cost-efficiency in forest industry. Modern biotechnical tools offer efficient and environmentally sound means to meet the challenges met by the wood processing industry. VTT has been one of the forerunners in developing versatile biotechnical applications for the benefit of wood processing industry. Especially, fundamental research carried out for decades on enzymes acting on cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin has laid a solid foundation for applied research as well. VTT has also an important role on development of durability and service life of wood based products.
