Stora Enso launches Lineo to provide biobased alternatives for fossil-based materials

February 20, 2018 |

In Finland, the launch of Lineo by Stora Enso is an important step in the way towards replacing fossil-based materials with renewable solutions. Lineo is available to companies seeking more sustainable, biobased alternatives.

Lignin is a renewable replacement for oil-based phenolic materials which are used in resins for plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), laminated veneer lumber (LVL), paper lamination and insulation material. Stora Enso has been producing lignin at industrial scale since 2015 at its Sunila Mill in Finland. The mill’s capacity is 50,000 metric tons per year, making Stora Enso the largest Kraft lignin producer in the world. Stora Enso is already selling Lineo to replace phenol, and the company is also looking at many other applications for this very versatile material.
