First deliveries of high purity near-native lignin and wood sugars from new SWEETWOOD factory in Imavere, Estonia

The SWEETWOODS biorefinery concept transforms hardwood into innovative high value-added products. Such products include biocompounds for fuels, bioplastics, insulation materials, cushions, panels etc.

According to the project’s leading partner Graanul Biotech, the factory will be operating at industrial scale during 2022. When fully operational the factory will process approximately 1 million m3 of residual and low quality wood annually from broadleaved species. The expectation is that 90% of the carbon content in the wood can be converted into various biomaterials and bioproducts which can replace fossil-oil based products.
