-The 2020 annual meeting will be held on Tuesday 15 September at 10-12 digitally via Zoom. At 10 we start with a lecture from prof. Joseph Samec from Stockholm University. The lecture is about an innovative chemical process that converts cellulose and lignin in fast-growing deciduous trees into cellulose fiber and lignin oil. This process is promising for future biorefineries that will transform all components in wood into valuable products. Welcome! For registration, please contact anneli.adler@slu.se.
