Focus is on the development of environmentally sustainable polymer materials from biobased resources and from waste streams.
The polymer technology study plastic materials, textile fibres and fabrics as well as composite materials. The research has an applied orientation, with the aim to find industrial applications, and several of the research projects have been done in close co-operation with companies. Some application examples are textiles and composites fort automotive, flame retardant fibres and fabrics for protective clothing, plastic materials and composites for buildings and constructions, new biomedical textile fibres as well as new packaging materials. The recycling of polymers is also investigated, for example regarding reprocessing of bioplastics and biocomposites, and the development of new techniques for material recovery of plastics. Some examples on past or present research topics are:
