In our demo factory, each day we have tons of near native lignin and cellulosic sugars available as a result of our innovative production process which convert almost all (over 90%) of the hardwood into usable high value biomaterials and bioproducts. This breakthrough enables companies to produce a diversity of products and establish novel bio-based value chains with low ecological footprint. Almost everything that is made from oil today could alternatively be made from wood in the future. Therefore, this is a challenge and opportunity for the whole range of industries that are using oil as raw material and production component today.
We are looking for partners who have found new ways to use biocomponents of the future – novel near native lignin and cellulosic sugars – to test out this material usage in different industries and products and find the ones with the highest added value and smallest ecological footprint.
Fossil addiction is a global problem and cost-effective bio-based alternatives are much sought after solutions by industrial actors in different industries who, in turn, respond to consumer demand.
Lignin can be used in areas such as biocomposites, specialty carbons, foams, concrete, adhesives and many others.
Cellulosic sugars can be converted by bioprocesses into fuels, pharmaceutical or food components, and platform chemicals for many other applications.
Current technologies for producing lignin and cellulosic sugars are inefficient in resource use and with significant environmental footprint. As our wood fractionation platform allows our products to be cost-competitive and with improved carbon neutrality compared to market dominating fossil derived products, we have a good competitive advantage and a chance to succeed.
