Researchers have succeeded in creating a surface on nano-sized cellulose crystals that imitates a biological structure. The surface adsorbs viruses and disables them. The results can prove useful in the development of antiviral ointments and surfaces, for instance.
An Aalto University invention accelerates the bleaching process of cellulose pulps and reduces the quantity of chemicals needed therein.
With a happy smile on his face, Gaurav Das welcomes you by hollering in Finnish: 'Hello, how are you?'
What you choose to go alongside your major subject may well decide the course of your career. Aalto University students definitely have no lack of possibilities in this area.
Using scanty resources, our forebears built durable homes. A Japanese architect, who has made Finland his home, investigates what we could learn from them.
Winning students were praised for originality, maturity and a deep understanding of the topics of their research.
Researchers at Aalto University have developed a method by which microcrystalline cellulose can be manufactured in a manner that is both environmentally friendly and efficient for purposes such as the animal feed industry. This increases the amount of land available for the cultivation of human food, and new, sustainable business is generated for chemical pulp mills.
Top-level research, cooperation, and tenacity gave rise to a fibre made of domestic birch pulp which even Marimekko found convincing.
