The goal of the Uusi puu project is to increase awareness of the wood-based bioeconomy; highlighting new and existing products and solutions, exploring their impact on society, and offering expert perspectives on the outlook for this innovative industry.
Comprising more than 20 Finnish organisations, Uusi puu is a community that promotes the wood-based bioeconomy and provides information to influencers and political decision-makers about the significance and value of wood-based products.
The winners of the Uusi Puu – New Wood 2021 Competition were announced on April 29, 2021 at the pre-PulPaper online event. Both the competition and the public vote were won by the UPM Biomedicals FibDex wound care dressing made from nanocellulose. FibDex wound dressing speeds up wound healing and reduces pains experienced by the patients.
