Industrial ecosystems created by Metsä Group and its bio-based partner companies make effective (100%) use of northern wood raw material, producing not only high-quality pulp, but also for example biocomposites.
In addition to its existing bioproducts, Metsä Group is developing new bioproducts, particularly under Metsä Spring, its recently established innovation company. “It’s important that new bioproducts are developed and the forest industry product portfolio is expanded in Finland. Metsä Spring is taking the forest-based bioeconomy and circular economy to an entirely new level and is actively developing new business concepts in cooperation with experts in various fields,” says Niklas von Weymarn, CEO of Metsä Spring.
These co-developed bioproducts of the future are a strong indication of the forest industry’s ability to renew and offer sustainable alternatives that can be used to replace fossil raw materials.
