New kind of gold from our Nordic forests

​After cellulose, lignin is the most abundant organic polymer in the world. It is a renewable, cost-efficient, non-toxic alternative to fossil-based raw materials, made from a traceable, natural material.  
Despite its widespread availability, lignin has rarely been used for producing new materials and intermediates.  However, it has a highly functionalversatility, making it an ideal contender for creating new bio-based materials.  This is one of the reasons why we recently began commercialising lignin.
