Posted July 19, 2019
Stora Enso is investing Euro 10 million to build a pilot facility for producing bio-based carbon materials based on lignin. Wood-based carbon can be utilised as a crucial component in batteries typically used in consumer electronics, the automotive industry and large-scale energy storage systems. The pilot plant will be located at Stora Enso’s Sunila Mill in Finland, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

The construction of the pilot facility will begin before the end of 2019 and is estimated to be complete by early 2021. Decisions about commercialisation will follow after evaluating the results of the pilot-scale production.

Stora Enso has been producing lignin industrially at its Sunila Mill in Finland since 2015. The mill’s annual production capacity is 50,000 tonnes making Stora Enso the largest kraft lignin producer in the world.

Stora Enso is a leading global provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper.
