Hazardous chemicals aren’t always visible, yet you can be exposed to them every day
Potentially harmful chemicals are not even visible to the naked eye but are still widely present in our homes in things such as furnishings, inner walls and insulation. This means that people working with such products, and people living with the products in their home, risk having their health negatively affected.
At Stora Enso, we are committed to change this. With our commitment of doing good for people and the planet, we always look for ways to innovate new, renewable alternatives where fossil-based materials are being used today. In the case of binding agents, we asked ourselves: what if we could come up with a fully bio-based binding agent, that keeps all the technical qualities of traditional binders, but with the benefits of being safe and renewable?
With NeoLigno®, we are taking the lead in creating a new era of natural binders that are bio-based and safe – free from harmful compounds like formaldehyde and isocyanate. With NeoLigno® as a binder, you can offer your customers a top-quality, fully bio-based end-product that is both safer to make and safer to use. All of this while still performing just as well as traditional binders.
NeoLigno® is a binder made from lignin – a fully bio-based organic polymer that comes from wood. In our production, we ensure that the wood we use comes from sustainably managed, traceable forests with FSC®/PEFC™ chain-of-custody and ISO 14001 certifications.
Customers appreciate that NeoLigno® can pass their most crucial technical requirements – giving high bonding strength and productivity performance comparable to traditional binders. Most importantly, it offers them the possibility of creating new, fully bio-based end-products that are safer to make and safer to use. Initial tests have also shown that NeoLigno® is easy to clean and can replace traditional binders in existing processes/workflows.
Stora Enso has produced lignin since 2015. With an experienced and highly professional product team we can help you replace fossil-based binders with a bio-based solution today. Contact us now for samples and learn how you could lead the change in a new era of natural binders!
Finnish plywood manufacturer Koskisen is the first company to start using the bio-based binder NeoLigno® by Stora Enso in its new sustainable product family. Koskisen and Stora Enso’s co-operation has resulted in the world’s first entirely bio-based furniture board, called Zero Furniture Board.
We would like to introduce to you our latest innovation NeoLigno® by Stora Enso, show you parts of the team and resources behind this achievement as well as share with you important insights gathered so far.
