Funded by
FRITZ EGGER GmbH & Co. OG, Weiberndorf 20, 6380 St. Johann in Tirol, Austria
Aim of the project between EGGER and BOKU is to develop a binder for wood based on lignin, isolated from black liquor, a waste stream of the pulp and paper industry. The project will search for appropriate methods to provide isolated lignin. In a subsequent step the lignin will be comprehensively characterized based on methods developed at the Department of Chemistry, Division of Chemistry of Sustainable Resources.
