REFINES FOREST LIGNIN TO BIOPLASTIC
The forest is a renewable resource. Lignin is a by-product from the pulping industry. Globally 80 million tonnes is processed in the pulping industry, making it the largest natural by-product on earth. Today, 99% of the produced lignin is burnt for its energy value.
We, at Lignin Industries, convert lignin so it can be blended with virgin and recycled thermoplastics creating new types of bioplastics. For every 1 kg of fossil based plastics replaced by RENOL® we decrease CO₂ by 5-6 kgs released into the atmosphere.
