Valeria Lundberg

Doktorand at Energy and Environment, Industrial Energy Systems and Technologies

Valeria is a chemical engineer and started her PhD studies September 2009. Her research deals with process integration of hemicellulose- based biorefineries in the chemical pulp industry".The purpose of the project is to increase the knowledge about various pathways for the chemical pulp industry, for example: production of dissolving pulp as a raw material for textiles, increased production of green electricity or upgrading of extracted hemicellulose/lignin to biofuels or biochemicals.
