Supports your business and the environment

The raw material used in VersaLime™ is carbon neutral and comes from existing processes at our mills. This fact means that VersaLime™ can substantially reduce the carbon footprint of products when replacing other material with similar content. Paired with a competitive price, you can be sure that VersaLime™ supports both your business and the environment.

A smarter way to make use of what we already generate

VersaLime™ is a great example of the kind of circular economy Stora Enso strives to create with all our products and processes, both from an environmental and business perspective. Because VersaLime™ is a by-product of an existing process, it makes a good case for how a side stream can create extra value, reduce waste and lower the environmental impact while also reducing costs.

Versatile by name, versatile by nature

As its name suggests, VersaLime™ offers wide areas of application and can replace non-renewable and chemical materials.
