When we produce pulp for paper and textiles, we also produce biomethanol from wood raw material. Biomethanol is both a renewable fuel for the future and an important platform chemical. Södra’s large investments in industrial production are now helping biomethanol become a real alternative to fossil solutions.
Turpentine has been used as a paint thinner for hundreds of years. Today, we are still finding new possibilities for this classic bioproduct. Our turpentine is efficiently produced and in stable volumes, providing security for the customers. And the raw material, from sustainably managed forests, is equally reliable and long-term.
Bioproducts play a crucial role in the transition to climate-smart materials. We are proud that our Liquid Forest™ products are already used in many different industries, for numerous applications. While their most important mission is to replace fossil materials, our bioproducts can also help make processes and end products meet various environmental certifications.
Our bioproducts are manufactured at the factories where we also manufacture wood products and pulp. Thus, biomethanol, tall oil and turpentine contribute to a responsible utilisation of our raw material, where no part of the tree is wasted.
We are proud to have been awarded two gold medals and one platinum medal by EcoVadis over the past three years, which conducts third-party evalutions in sustainability. When EcoVadis evaluate companies, they take every aspect of sustainability into account. A platinum medal means that we rank among the top 1% of players in our field in terms of social and environmental sustainability.
In addition to delivering large volumes of bioproducts, Södra also provides support and advice when you want to create sustainable products or make your manufacturing more climate-smart. By leaning on our own research and knowledge, along with many years of experience, the solutions are realistic and ready to be turned into industrial production.
