With the help of forest residues such as sawdust, branches and tops (GROT) and cellulose from sea squirts, researchers in Biochemical Process Engineering at Luleå University of Technology, want to make our stomach to feel better. The researchers are the first to develop prebiotics from non-edible forest and sea resources, into a type of fiber that helps beneficial bacteria in the large intestine to thrive and multiply.
From mines and smelters some waste containing high levels of arsenic will occur. Today, this waste ends up at different landfills, but in a new research project, Luleå Technical University's professor Jurate Kumpiene will develop a method for safe final storage of arsenic.
