Lignin Industries

Net Zero E-Com Packaging Plastics Based on Wood

Lignin is one of the world's most abundant polymers, present in wood, grass, straw etc. Traditionally lignin is burnt in the pulp milling industry as a residue for low energy value, Lignin can now be used to produce a thermoplastic material that can replace regular fossil-based plastics up to 30%. With an LCA of -1,9 kg CO2 eq/kg this enables the development of net-zero plastic packaging for the e-commerce industry.
