Stora Enso invests in building a Competence Centre and diversifying the raw material base for biocomposites
In order to meet increasing customer demand, Stora Enso will broaden its biocomposites raw material base at the Hylte Mill, Sweden to provide more choice in technical properties and selection of fibres. The investment covers a new Biocomposites Competence Centre and the installation of new machinery for the milling of large fibres for the DuraSense™ by Stora Enso biocomposite material. “As we see an increasing demand for the innovative DuraSense™ biocomposite, the diversification of the raw material base and the new Biocomposites Competence Centre will provide Stora Enso with faster access to the market for replacing fossil-based plastics with renewable ones,” says Jari Suominen, Executive Vice President, Stora Enso’s Wood Products division. “With our fully integrated process and excellent fibre knowledge we can enhance our growth in this market.” Click Read More below for additional information.
