Advisory services for the Bioproducts sector

to maximise the value from side streams


Maximising the utilisation of all fractions of wood is the ongoing trend. This enables optimising 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 mainly using biomass  to produce traditional Forest Industry products.

Bioplastics derived from renewable forest biomass may provide part of the solution to the world’s massive plastic pollution problem. Rethinking raw material sources and recycling will be critical in this battle. Transitioning to the usage of bioproducts, such as industrial chemicals and solvents, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and renewable materials such as bio-composites, would help us reduce our reliance on fossil-based resources.

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.

Maximising the utilisation of all wood fractions is the future trend

The bioeconomy is one of the world's fastest-growing economic sectors. The growth is driven by government regulations and the sustainability expectations of consumers, investors, and brand owners.
