Bioinnovations with outstanding performance

Lignin is a 100% bio-based substance that can be found in the cell walls of all plants and especially trees. UPM BioPiva™ lignin is a versatile natural polymer, verifiably non-toxic and responsible sourced raw material. Lignin plays an important role in the natural carbon cycle by binding atmospheric carbon dioxide and serving as a long-term carbon storage. It will transform the sustainability performance of your products and help you radically improve your CO₂ footprint - bio-based lignin is a natural winner.


We offer a cost effective and tightly quality controlled range of sustainable lignin products for numerous applications from industrial to everyday items. Moreover, we continuously support our customers in implementing lignin-based raw materials and finding the right lignin type for each individual process.
