Which input provides your business model/core technology towards a bio-based economy?

LignoPure is the link between biorefineries and manufactures looking for sustainable solutions. Through our IP and our know-how we are creating a place for tailored lignin in the market. Lignin is already widely available and can be used not only as a “green” filler but as a multifunctional ingredient, in both material applications and life sciences.

Which market/clients do you address and which short-/long-term goals do you have?

With our tailored lignin we are addressing the sector of personal care to provide a natural multifunctional biopolymer (e.g. uv-protection, antioxidant…). The same properties can also be enhanced for material application, where we offer our application platform to develop new materials with lignin as the base ingredient (PU-foams, thermoplastics, elastomers and many more).

What makes your approach unique compared to other stakeholders in this field?

Looking at the broad availability of lignins in the market, we don´t want to force a specific lignin in a targeted product, but rather match the suitable lignin with the targeted application. The focus hereby is always the functionality of the lignin and additionally the replacement of fossil-based products.
