We are here to contribute to a reduced global carbon footprint
With our first product, you can replace your plastic with FSC and PEFC certified Nordic fir
How it works:
Our material is made out of wood fibres from fir trees, which are also used to produce paper. The fibres are surface-modified through our patented technology, which can be implemented in the existing production lines of paper mills. This process makes wood fibres more compatible with plastic, and is made without harmful chemicals. The fibres are then turned into pellets, for easy handling when mixed with new or recycled plastic. The ratio of natural material and plastic is set based on the requirements of the product and the customer. This mixture is then turned into a granulate format, which is easy to handle and transport. The granules are the material that is used when producing the final plastic product through injection molding or other production methods.
What is a carbon Sink?
Wood is a naturally climate positive material. Trees play an important role in the carbon cycle by continually taking carbon out of the atmosphere through the process of photosynthesis. Growing trees act as a carbon sink, as they absorb more carbon dioxide than they release. That´s why replacing one kilo of plastic with one kilo of our wood fibers contributes to 5 kilograms of carbon reduction.
The raw material
Sweden, Norway and Finland are three of the most forest-rich countries in Europe. Of Europe's 211 million hectares of forest land, there are over 61 million hectares in these three nations. The wood fibres we use are sourced from Nordic forest using international forest certification schemes, under which sustainable forestry is verified through third-party certification such as FSC and PEFC.
By using the spare capacity from the existing Forest industry, our product is highly scalable. Our solution enables wood fiber producers and the paper industry to produce and deliver material in already existing production lines and supply chains. This makes it a solution that can be applied globally with local production with less shipping costs and pollution as a result, but it also contributes to keeping the otherwise declining paper industry alive.
Fibra Q can be recycled, just like any other plastic and we estimate the re-processability is possible up to five to seven times, just like conventional plastic. Fibra Q can also improve the properties of other recycled plastics, extending their re-processability. But it is all dependent on the volumes and the progress of recycling bioplastics in general.
Build your brand
As customers' awareness about environmental issues increases, so does the demand for sustainably produced consumer goods. We offer companies a possibility to decrease their effect on the climate by using bioplastic in their production, while at the same time meeting consumers demand on companies to take responsibility for their impact on the climate.
Making your product more sustainable is not just good for the environment, it also builds your brand and tells the story of your company values!
