100% fossil-free structural boards and building elements with NeoLigno® by Stora Enso

Together with RISE, IsoTimber and Moelven, Stora Enso has been working on the most recent development of NeoLigno – 100% fossil-free structural boards and building elements.

Stora Enso has launched NeoLigno®, a revolutionary lignin-based binder for particleboard and insulation applications. We are committed to doing good for people and the planet, which is why we always look to innovate new, renewable alternatives where fossil-based materials are being used today. In this case, we asked ourselves: What if we could come up with a bio-based binding agent that keeps all the technical qualities of traditional binders while also being safe and renewable? Our answer to this question is NeoLigno® by Stora Enso.

NeoLigno® by Stora Enso
NeoLigno® is a bio-based binder that is made from lignin, an organic polymer that comes from wood. It is primarily suited to particleboard and insulation applications. Using a bio-based binder makes the end product both safer to make and safer to use—all without having to compromise on technical performance.

We ensure that the wood sourced to produce NeoLigno® comes from sustainably managed, traceable forests with FSC® and PEFCTM chain-of-custody and ISO 14001 environmental management certifications.

Joint operations opening the doors of tomorrow
The most recent development with NeoLigno® has been in a project called 100 % fossil-free structural boards and building elements, a collaboration between Stora Enso, IsoTimber and Moelven. The project is part of the strategic innovation program BioInnovation, which is in turn funded by Vinnova, the Swedish Energy Agency and Formas. It is coordinated by RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) with the aim of developing 100% bio-based and circular components that can help the construction industry improve its sustainability performance.
