FPInnovations’ Bioproducts research program aims to integrate biomaterials into new so-called non-traditional applications to the forest sector, including the research and innovation activities required for such integration. This approach aims to create new high value-added products for emerging natural and renewable product markets and also to bring these products into applications of non-traditional sectors for the forest products industry.
Who can benefit from this program?
  • Companies of all types of industries that produces consumer goods
  • Companies always on the lookout for new and innovative components and materials
  • Companies that are looking in diversifying its offering in a more sustainable way
  • Companies looking for innovative new material solutions to improve your products’ competitiveness
  • Companies that wants to change its material supply to a bio-based source.
Great benefits for your organization!

If you recognize yourself in any of these situations, you could now benefit from FPInnovations’ new Bioproducts Program to:

  • Capitalize on emerging markets for natural and renewable products
  • Access FPInnovations’ experts with regard to wood-based bioproducts and their potential applications
  • Get rights to utilize FPInnovations’ vast array of pilot and laboratory equipment
  • Participate in research program meetings, allowing you to direct the research to better meet your needs.

Application examples:

Cellulosic Bioproducts

One specific component of the Bioproducts program aims to optimize the value and diversification of the applications of such new cellulose structures as cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), cellulose filaments (CF), and cellulose gels, whose properties may improve a vast range of products by integrating them, for example, into composite materials, wood products, bioplastics, paints, inks, varnishes, textiles, and cosmetics.

The work accomplished through the new Bioproducts division will help connect the forest products industry with sectors considered to be non-traditional for this industry, such as the automotive, aeronautics, and plastic processing sectors as well as a good many other sectors that have yet to be explored.
