“It’s a great project. We promote the development towards a more low-carbon economy and the transition to a biobased society,” says Paul Nemes, vice president of Paper Province, picture above.

A new project is being launched to further develop LignoCity and help startups and small and medium-sized companies develop new green businesses with lignin as a base.

Using the testbed LignoCity in Kristinehamn, Sweden, RISE together with partners has shown how lignin can be used to produce both bioplastics, biocoatings, bioresins, biofuels as well as carbon fibre for lightweight applications and energy storage. Now a new project is being launched to further develop LignoCity and help startups and small and medium-sized companies develop new green businesses with lignin as a base. The goal is to contribute to new business ventures in the region Värmland and to give companies an international lead in bioeconomy.

The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund. In addition to RISE, Paper Province, Kristinehamn Municipality, Värmland Region, Karlstad University, Nordic Paper and RenFuel participate.
