Lineo™ by Stora Enso is a renewable, wood-based, non-toxic alternative to fossil-based materials. We separate the lignin during the kraft pulping process of Nordic softwood, pine and spruce. The refined kraft lignin is available as a stable, free-flowing brown powder or a moist block of powder.
Lineo™ by Stora Enso is a product family with the grades Lineo™Prime and Lineo™Classic, both available in free-flowing or block format. Lineo has a high dry content, superior dispersibility and long storage time. With its higher reactivity and purity, it is consistent from batch to batch. Stora Enso can supply different levels of dryness according to customer requirements.
Stora Enso’s Sunila mill is the largest integrated kraft lignin extraction plant in the world. We’ve been producing lignin at industrial scale since 2015 at this Finnish mill, where it is also fired in our lime kiln to replace the use of fossil-based fuel and reduce our CO2 emissions. The lignin capacity is 50,000 tonnes annually.
Lineo is ideal for companies looking for alternatives to petroleum-based products. It is a non-toxic raw material with a traceable origin and stable cost structure. And because it more fully utilises wood from other production processes, it contributes to resource efficiency.
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 OHSAS 18001 accreditations.
