Recycled packaging

Our lignin-based products enhance polymeric strength when used in the production of recycled packaging paper.

They are used in the paper machine size press to partially displace more expensive starch. This not only saves costs, but also enhances the strength of recycled paper and improves machine productivity.

In addition, the use of these products improves sheet appearance by imparting a darker more consistent shade, thereby eliminating the need to add expensive dyes. The products may also reduce dryer energy requirements, resulting in further cost savings.

Lignin is a major component of wood and is one of the most abundant natural organic wood polymers which provides a multitude of functionalities.

Our lignin is used in a variety of industrial and agricultural areas for various applications.
