Lineo™ – Non-toxic, renewable material replacing petroleum-based products
Lineo™ by Stora Enso is a renewable, wood-based, non-toxic alternative to fossil-based materials. Lineo™ is made of lignin, a complex plant-derived polymer found in the cell walls of almost all dry-land plants. The refined kraft lignin is available as a stable free-flowing brown powder. Lineo™ can be used to replace oil-based phenolic materials in a range of applications, such as in resins for plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), laminated veneer lumber (LVL), paper lamination and insulation material.
After cellulose, lignin is the biggest renewable source of carbon anywhere. Lineo™ is ideal for companies looking for alternatives to petroleum-based products. It is a non-toxic raw material with a traceable origin and stable cost structure. It also contributes to resource efficiency since it fully utilitses wood from other production processes.
