Stora Enso pursues the development of new business opportunities in the domain of biomaterials by using its renewable and non-food competing feedstock to develop a range of intermediates that can substitute non-renewable chemicals and materials.
Biorefinery represents a major step in the company’s transformation. Several investments are taking place in order to develop an innovative and differentiated offering. The Biorefinery product portfolio will address well identified and unmet needs in specific industries outside of our traditional businesses.
Some of the areas of development are:
Micro Cellulose (MC)
developing new applications for versatile business segments
Lignin based products
to replace fossil chemicals and materials
including pulp mill by-products and functional chemicals for specialty uses
including gaseous and liquid biofuels
We believe that product creation cannot be successful without a strong collaboration work together with our customers. Just like in any other activities we are involved in, our goal is with long-term and reliable partnerships create durable, sustainable and high performance tailor made solutions for and with our customers.
In addition to being a renewable source of raw materials, our worldwide forestry operations provide us with a high availability of diversified wood species. Having access to a wide range of raw material such as birch, eucalyptus, pine and spruce, extends our possibilities in terms of research. This high availability of renewable and non-food competing raw material represents a real difference in the industries we are stepping in.
