Autumn leaves contain a range of interesting substances such as pigments, carbohydrates, lignings, proteins and compounds that inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd is developing leaf-processing technologies, which could be used for example by the cosmetic, textile and gardening industries.
