Custom lignin processes for optimal results
Lignopure’s years of research and experience in the field of lignin have enabled us to develop technologies and expert, project-based services for lignin producers and companies interested in making more of their lignin side streams or the utilization of tailored lignin-particles for innovative materials and applications.
Our goal at Lignopure is to bring value to lignin by being the connection link between raw lignin and industries interested in novel lignin-containing applications. This is possible thanks to our extensive know-how on lignin together with Lignopure’s patented particle technology that optimizes lignin particle and powder properties without altering their multifunctional natural structure, which then enables the use of this amazing biopolymer to its fullest.
You have a lignin-rich side side stream which you want to valorize? Let us guide you through the process of developing a lignin downstream process, tailored to your raw material and the requirements of your clients, from initial lignin quality and process feasibility evaluation, via lab testing and pilot production of lignin powder prototypes up to the implementation of our technology as part of your process.
What’s more, we offer extensive lignin expertise that supports not only replacing existing, potentially harmful materials and ingredients in a variety of industrial applications but also that can improve the properties and processability of materials in an environmentally and economically friendly manner for a better circularity.
From high-value to bulk applications, from laboratory-scale lignin processing for small first assessments to scale-up to industrially relevant prototype lignin powder, our expert team will support you in finding use cases, tailoring crude lignin into particles with their most promising shape, prototyping novel materials and final product evaluations.
Customized project development
Are you a lignin producer? – Understand your lignin and bring value to it!
Generating knowledge about your lignin and its possible application is an important factor in using lignin as a side stream of biorefineries or pulp and paper manufacturers, let’s work together to boost the potential of your lignin.
Lignin assessment: we conduct raw lignin analysis according to internal standards to present you with the unique characteristics of your lignin.
Lignin comparison: we present you with the property variations of your lignin by benchmarking it with other lignins to understand its unique points for different possible applications.
Lignin tailoring: using Lignopure’s patented particle technology we create microparticles that will conform to your needs and application requirements.
Lignin-based product development together with our partners: formulation of different applications to unlock your lignin’s potential.
Lignin-powder prototype: we provide your with powder prototypes of your high-quality lignin at industrially relevant scale for your potential end clients.
Feasibility and Lifecycle: Ready-to-use information to be shared with your clients about your optimized lignin particles, their possibilities, properties and potential value.
