Joint Aalto University and VTT Bioeconomy Infrastructure is on the updated national research infrastructure roadmap 2014-2020

Aalto Bioeconomy contains the selected research infrastructures at the School of Chemical Engineering for development of chemicals, fuels, fibre products and materials from renewable biomass utilizing biotechnical, chemical and thermal processing technologies.

The infrastructure contains research laboratories, characterization and analysis equipment and modeling and simulation tools in the field of biorefinery. The research enabled by the infra can be divided to process technology, industrial biotechnology and material science aiming to novel products and process solutions utilizing renewable and preferably non-edible biomass.
