New innovations based on biomaterials

There are new bio-based alternatives to fossil-based materials that can solve a variety of challenges in your business. 

Do you need to reduce emissions? Do you need to become more sustainable? We’re creating new fossil-free materials to let you do it. Let’s talk.

We can help you with:

Did someone say sustainable batteries?

Whatever you manufacture, you probably want to do it with less fossil fuels, less energy and less waste. The materials used in manufacturing matter, which is why low-emissions alternatives to steel and plastic are so important. What's more, they come from sustainably managed forests.

In fact, we’re using parts of the tree today that were previously burned for energy. For example, lignin is today being used to replace binders in the construction industry and to replace graphite in lithium-ion batteries.

Our highly committed R&D teams at Stora Enso are continually developing new solutions and ramping them up on an industrial scale so that you can reach your sustainability goals.

Looking for a sustainable alternative? Talk to us for a bio-based material that meets your needs.
