Bio-based materials

The promise of a more sustainable future

Lighter, sturdier and renewable? The opportunities for bio-based materials today and in the future are endless. That’s why Stora Enso is developing new materials and new production methods – for a more sustainable future.

There is a great demand among consumers to live more eco-friendly, climate positive lifestyles, lowering their environmental footprint. At Stora Enso, we believe that one of the answers to how we can reduce our reliance on fossil-based materials and make better choices every day is through bio-based materials.

Below, we list some of the more interesting uses where innovative bio-based material solutions can replace fossil-based and other non-renewable materials. Some of these examples exist already while others are being innovated.  

Innovation for tomorrow. And today.

Bio-based materials will be part of everyone’s life

Stora Enso’s different bio-based materials are designed for a wide range of applications, from simple packaging to the battery in your future car. We’re hoping that they will be a standard part of a sustainable future.

  • Micro fibrillated cellulose (MFC) for food packaging, liquid packaging, take-away packaging, barrier films, among others.
  • Cellulose foam by Stora Enso for protective packaging, general packaging, thermal packaging, sound and construction insulation or even hydroponics.
  • NeoLigno® by Stora Enso replaces fossil-based binders in insulation, particleboard and panels.
  • Bio-based FDCA for PEF and other bio-based polymers can be used in the beverage, food and packaging industries.
  • Bio-based carbon materials for energy storage by processing lignin into a carbon intermediate for electrode materials.
