Hazardous chemicals aren't always visible to the naked eye, yet they may be in your homes or in products you use every day. At Stora Enso we are on a mission to replace such products with renewable materials. One of our latest innovations, NeoLigno® by Stora Enso, is a fully bio-based binder system without formaldehyde and isocyanates, thus, providing healthier indoor and working environments.

NeoLigno is now on display at the U-Joints exhibition curated by Anniina Koivu and Andrea Caputo and presented by Gewerbemuseum Winterthur until 9 January 2022. Part III of the U-Joints exhibition series focuses on the connective techniques of “Adhesives and Fusions”. The exhibition provides insight into the versatile strength of adhesives and bonding agents, both traditional and newly developed. This is why NeoLigno has earned its spot at the exhibition, demonstrating the power of a tree.

NeoLigno is a break-through innovation combining a lignin-based binder and a bio-based hardener. Lignin is nature's second most common macromolecule after cellulose. It is found in all plants and makes up to a third of the composition of wood. Lignin is a renewable raw material free from toxic substances and traceable to its area of origin.

U-Joints presents NeoLigno applied on a prototype designed by industrial designer Ville Kokkonen. Ville Kokkonen has worked with leading companies in the field of design and technology, focusing on strategic design and product development, such as Artek, Nokia, Iittala, Wärtsilä, Ensto, Stora Enso and UPM. Ville Kokkonen currently holds the position of Professor of Practice at Aalto University, School of Arts Design and Architecture in Helsinki, Finland.
