viobond lignin

The first shipments of the premium CO2 footprint lignin on their way to Latvijas Finieris

We are thrilled to announce that the first shipments of Lignova, the premium CO2 footprint lignin, are now en route to Latvijas Finieris, delivered by our esteemed collaboration partner Fibenol as part of the #VIOBOND project.

The plywood industry is at the forefront of embracing innovative biobased materials, and the potential of lignin is no exception. We are proud to be part of this transition towards sustainability by expanding our range of eco-friendly and sustainable raw material alternatives.

The introduction of sustainable, EPD certified lignin with a premium CO2 footprint enhances the plywood industry’s options and environmental impact. By replacing phenol with this new type of lignin, we are taking a significant step towards a greener future. Our calculations show it can cut GWP emissions by up to 10 times, supporting a more sustainable industry.

Fibenol’s project manager Karl Peebo eloquently summarizes the significance of this development

This collaboration with Fibenol and the delivery of Lignova from their state-of-the-art, highly efficient biorefinery in Estonia marks a milestone in our quest for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly plywood industry. We are excited about the opportunities this presents and believe it will pave the way for a brighter, greener future.
