Ecohelix has received Environmental Permit for scale-up of the demo production
Ecohelix has received an environmental permit to expand the production in the current demo plant from 20 ton per year to 500 ton. Plant is located in Örnsköldsvik´s industrial area, alongside Domsjö Fabriker´s pulp mill. Environmental permit process includes the evaluation of environmental impacts of the plant to the nearby surroundings and people.
Ecohelix receives SEK 13 million to bring WOODMER® biopolymer products to market
Ecohelix announces that it has received a SEK 13 million grant from Vinnova, Sweden´s Innovation Agency. The grant enables Ecohelix to bring its sustainable biopolymer WOODMER® to the market. With the investment, Ecohelix is scaling up demo production plant to verify commercial scale production capabilities and to make sustainable biopolymer available on the market.
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
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.
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.

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.
