The Flexible Pysical Protection (FPP) process and technology, are based on solid fundamental research by the two co-founders performed at the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC) at KTH, Royal Institute of technology. In a nutshell, fundamental knowledge of plant cell walls, lignin structure and reactivity are combined with mild extraction protocols adopting physical protection strategies that can be fine-tuned to to produce lignin with tailored properties for customized applications. Details on the fundamental work can be found in the references below.
