Sample article from our Sustainability & Social Responsibility

March 27, 2023 (press release) –

Ecohelix has teamed up with Sweco, Eurocon Oy and AFRY AB to build a modern production facility entirely from wood. This highly ecological production plant planned for Örnsköldsvik in Sweden will produce 15 000 tons of renewable wood-based polymeric products. Ecohelix WOODMER® biopolymer can be used as sustainable component in paper chemical, packaging and cosmetics formulations.

Ecohelix has created an industry first and commercially scalable technology using currently untapped hemicellulose as a raw material in biopolymer production. Patented technology uses biotechnology and membrane filtration to produce a wood-based hemicellulose/lignin copolymer, by mimicking the way wood itself does so in nature

This first production plant will be integrated to Domsjö Fabriker´s pulp mill in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. As a circular economy company, Ecohelix follows the principles of sustainability and circularity also in the production plant’s construction exclusively using wood, which today is still quite novel.
