Linda Tufvesson

Researcher at the Department for Biosystems and Technology.


My research field concerns environmental aspects connected to the use of renewable resources, from biofuels and bioplastics to biochemicals. The research focuses both on environmental performance of different options but also on the development of the life cycle assessment methodology.
