Lineo® by Stora Enso

Replacing fossil-based raw materials with Lineo® by Stora Enso

The world is moving away from fossil-based materials towards more sustainable solutions. Legislators, companies, and consumers are all looking for more environmentally friendly alternatives. But can all solutions which are currently fossil-based be replaced? Yes, we believe they can, and one solution is Lineo®.

Lineo® is made from lignin – one of the main building blocks of a tree. It is renewable and bio-based, and can be used as a responsible alternative to many fossil-based materials.

Today, Lineo® is used in a variety of applications, ranging from replacing phenol in resins for plywood, to developing bio-based and biodegradable polymers. It's even used to replace a part of the oil-based binder in asphalt.

By using nature’s own natural binder our customers can create new products that are more sustainable, have a lower carbon footprint, and that reduce dependence on fossil-based materials.

Superior material qualities

Lineo® is a high purity kraft lignin material with superior dispersibility and long storage time. It is consistent from batch to batch with a high reactivity and purity. In production, we can also supply different levels of dryness according to your requirements. Right now, it is available as a stable, free-flowing brown powder (dry lignin) or as a wet powder (wet lignin). But during summer 2022, we will replace these qualities with a dry granulated material for easier handling.

Lineo® by Stora Enso is a product family of the grades Lineo®Prime and Lineo®Classic.

Buy lignin from a leader in sustainability

Lineo® is ideal for companies looking for sustainable alternatives to fossil-based products. Producing lignin does not require any additional tree-cutting. Instead, we are optimising the use of resources and finding new ways of using lignin and trees to their full potential.

Like all our products, Lineo is made from sustainably sourced wood. Our Sunila Mill holds both FSC® and PEFC™ chain-of-custody certifications, as well as ISO 14001, ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and ISO45001 accreditations.
