Industry Nordic - Towards Nordic Industrial Scale Manufacturing of Non-Wood Forest Products

Last changed: 20 August 2020

The aim of the project is to develop the Nordic natural products industry through increasing the processing level of local raw material among small enterprises in order to offer products for the large international markets.

In the project the market potential of products is researched and new production methods are investigated and optimized. In the latter case as well as in production in general, access to fast and cheap measurement results is of great importance. The project will therefore also assess infrared spectrophotometry as a measuring method.
