The aromatic structure of lignin molecules make them particularly suitable for the manufacturing of phenolic resins and melamine-phenolic resins.

Using lignin as a copolymer during the polymerisation process saves phenol and formaldehyde, thereby enabling more sustainable production and application of resins containing phenol.

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.
