Johan Gadolin Process Chemistry Centre - PCC

PCC merges chemistry and chemical engineering to provide the solutions for the future. The goal is to develop new, sustainable technologies for making selected platform chemicals, fine and specialty chemicals as well as health promoting materials and chemicals. The research is mainly focused on two important types of molecules appearing in forest biomass, namely hemicelluloses and lignin. The research work is done in close collaboration with industrial companies. PCC also has an extensive international collaboration network with partners all over the world.

The executive board of the Centre consists of Professor Stefan Willför (chairman), Professor Johan Bobacka (vice chairman), Professor Leena Hupa, Professor Reko Leino and Professor Tapio Salmi. The Centre also has two Senior Scientific Advisors; Prof. em. Ari Ivaska and Prof. em. Bjarne Holmbom.
