Biomaterials

Our technology fractionates gently all three main constituents of biomass: pulp, hemicellulose and lignin.

Pulp

Dissolving pulp is manufactured for applications that require a high chemical purity and a particularly low hemicellulose content. The biggest market at present is the textile industry, where it is used as a substitute for cotton and oil-based raw materials.

Hemicellulose

About 25% of wood biomass is made up of hemicellulose. Due to its water solubility, biodegradability and amorphous, flexible structure, hemicellulose is an interesting raw material for several high-value purposes.

Lignin

Lignin constitutes about a third of wood biomass. Lignin is, by nature, a branched and cross-linked polymer which contains both hydrophobic and hydrophilic groups.
