Thinking Lignin Design
Many chemical products, such as paints, adhesives, plastics and synthetic fibers, are based on aromatic carbon compounds derived from crude oil, natural gas and coal. The vegetable raw material lignin presents a promising alternative and is created in huge quantities as a waste product within the paper industry. In cooperation with artists and designers we identify suitable application possibilities for lignin, develop prototypes and establish a communication strategy.
