The group focuses on conversion of renewable raw materials, mainly lignocellulose but also sucrose or lactose, into technologically relevant products. Enzymatic processes for saccharification of cellulose and hemicellulose are studied. Use of lignocellulolytic enzymes in different areas of technology (pulp and paper, biogas) are investigated. Follow-up processes based on sugars derived from (hemi)cellulose are studied.
