Lignin

Properties of lignin produced by our technology

  • Sulphur-free
  • Reactive

  • Low molar mass 1500 – 3000 g/mol

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. It has therefore found a myriad of applications as emulsifier, dispersant, binder, adhesive and additive in industries as diverse as construction, agriculture, water treatment, oil drilling and ore processing. Lignin can also be turned into plastic for injection moulding and even bio-based carbon fibres.
