Advising clients in the Bioproducts business

to maximize the value from side streams


Bioproducts


Maximizing the utilization of all fractions of wood is the future trend . This also enables optimizing the value derived from forest biomass throughout the industry value chain.  Company growth can be driven by capturing new opportunities and generating higher value returns than when using biomass primarily only to produce traditional Forest Industry products.

Bioplastics made from renewable forest biomass may offer a part of the solution in the battle against the major global plastic pollution problem. In this battle rethinking of raw material sourcing and recycling will be a must.  Bioproducts, including products such as industrial chemicals and solvents, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and renewable materials like biocomposites, help us to reduce the dependency of fossil-based materials.

Vision Hunters consulting expertise for bioproducts covers traditional products such as tall and pine oil as well as new bioproduct segments ranging from bioplastics, lignin, hemicellulose and cellulose derivates.

To meet the ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions we need to reduce our dependency of fossil resources. This will require a strong bio-based industry and an ongoing effort in the development of alternative renewable end-products.  The consumer demand is also pushing for more environmentally friendly alternatives, better recyclability and cradle-to-cradle products supporting circular economy.
