Lignin is one of the main building blocks of a tree. It acts as the glue holding the tree together. In pulp mills it has mostly been burned for energy. But now there are new ways of making use for lignin to replace fossil materials. For instance replacing phenols for adhesives and to make carbon fibres as well as fuels and bioplastics. We are just at the beginning of the development and the future looks promising.

Per Tomani, Business Developer at the RISE research institute, and Roxana Barbieru, Director Market Application Development at Stora Enso Biomaterials discuss lignin’s future possibilities.
