Regarding the novel coronavirus: Due to the government's recommendations, the University of Borås has moved over to online instruction. This is valid until the end of the term on 7 June. Stay updated.

Production of new renewable materials and biodegradable materials, enzymes and biogas through fungal solid-state fermentation onto lignocellulosic substrates

The projects aims at using filamentous fungi for the production of new materials through solid-state fermentation onto lignocellulosic waste.

In addition to the new materials, the project gives also focus to the potential to produce other value-added products such as enzymes and biogas. Biogas production through anaerobic digestion will also provide insights on the biodegradability of the new produced materials.
