Together with our partners, UPM has developed a rigorously tested portfolio of bio-based lignin solutions. From replacing phenol in phenolic-type resins to formulating waterproofing coatings, bio-based lignin is a natural winner.
UPM offers a cost effective and tightly quality controlled range of sustainable lignin products on numerous applications from industrial to everyday items. Our lignin solutions include everything from pulp production’s by-product kraft lignin to biorefined lignin extracted from novel wood disintegration process.
We continuously work in supporting our customers to implement lignin-based raw materials and to find the right lignin type for each individual process. This includes both formulation support as well as all aspects of lignin storing, handling, and safety.
Tailor-made lignin solutions for numerous end-uses such as:
- rubber products
- animal feed
- carbon fibers
- wood- and plywood-based building materials and composites
- adhesives and resins
- polymer foams
