Ecohelix Woodmer biopolymer reducing emissions
"It´s amazing, how biopolymers can compete against well established oil based products", says Petri Oinonen, CEO and founder of Ecohelix
Ecohelix Purpose and Origin
The amount of hemicellulose in wood. Now unused. In active use by Ecohelix innovation.
Our mission is to make everyday life more sustainable. Ecohelix introduces a unique and patented technology refining hemicellulose from currently untapped pulping industry side streams into high performing WOODMER® biopolymer components.
With the help of the new technology, we can provide green, sustainable alternatives to plastics and to other conventional oil and food-based polymers. The positive impact is remarkable.
From purpose to technology
DRIVEN BY NATURE
Ecohelix is a sustainable materials company. It is also a technology company. It means we think and operate like engineers, and we possess our background in science. As we deal with nature, we also consider ourselves as sustainability driven individuals.
Ecohelix is based in Stockholm, Sweden.

SOLUTIONS AND PRODUCTS
Our solution results high level of performance with low emissions. Enhancing circularity and utilizing biotechnology, a forestry side stream is used as a raw material for the production in an elegant integrated biomimicking process. It works in two ways. Firstly, through our unique process Ecohelix provides high performing WOODMER® biopolymer products to be utilized in multiple identified applications that can be used in packaging, homecare, cosmetics, textiles, and other applications.
Secondly, we provide a way to make pulping processes more effective by utilizing the previously unused side streams and thus improving the pulping process.

About the Products
A world leading global chemicals company with safe, sustainable chemical solutions for water intensive industries. One of the main focusses of Kemira is on pulp & paper.
Domsjö Fabriker AB is dissolving pulp mill in Sweden owned by the Aditya Birla group. The Domsjö mill refines wood into cellulose, bioethanol, and lignin via a dissolving pulp process.
Novozymes is the world leader in biological solutions. For more than 70 years the company has solved biological problems and has uniquely dedicated to enzymes and microbes.
INVESTING IN FUTURE
The majority of the products we use every day have oil-based or food-based polymer components. This creates greenhouse gas emissions, which boost the global warming. Now, there are alternatives to plastics and a way to replace harmful oil and food-based materials with bio-based WOODMER® polymers. Sustainably.
This can be done by mimicking the nature´s own processes. Ecohelix has created a technology that revolutionizes the utilization of wood based polymers – now in demo scale.
Full scale production of WOODMER® biopolymers is envisioned to start in 2025.

Let´s go to Domsjö
Domsjö Fabriker is a forward looking biorefinery, making more from the tree. Together with the owner, Aditya Birla and the customers, Domsjö Fabriker can help to drive development towards a sustainable bioeconomy that utilizes wood as raw material. Main products of the company are cellulose, lignin and bioethanol, all with an origin in sustainable Swedish forestry. The relationship between Domsjö Fabriker and Ecohelix was born during the early days of Ecohelix, when enthusiastic scientists and industrialsts met in the community of Royal Institute of Technology and Greenhous Labs, exchanged ideas, worked to proof their ideas right and started to think about the expansion from lab scale innovation to industry scale production. Now, the cooperation has raised to the next level.
The Ecohelix Origin
Ecohelix’s main innovation is related to hemicellulose, which is on average about 25–30% in trees. It seems downright incredible that it has not been able to take advantage of this before. Now, things have changed and Ecohelix provides a solution. It has been the result of persistent research but was also inspired by the amazing biorefineries of nature.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Ecohelix AB is an independent biotechnology company, established in 2014 and based in Stockholm, Sweden, where we run our R&D efforts. Biotechnology, material chemistry and process technology are the cornerstones of the R&D strategy, enabling the company to build production of high performing and sustainable products, thus bringing them to the market.
The company is financed by private equity as well as national and EU grants. Our VEHICLE project receives funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 837866.
Ecohelix has spent years in the laboratory developing this unique technology. The process has been verified in relevant industrial conditions (TRL 7). Ecohelix has cooperated and established a demo scale plant for production of the hemicellulose-lignin copolymers developed and patented by Ecohelix and supported by Domsjö Fabriker. The technology has proven to be highly efficient and we are now ready to establish industrial setup to produce sustainable biopolymers in a large-scale.
