Sustainability and values

Sustainability is built into everything we innovate and do. To prove it in practice, we want to show real, concrete results. The results are the WOODMER™ products.

We believe in certain values that steer the passion. Observing the world to start with. Especially nature is important in creating “A-ha!” moments that create solutions shaping our world. It starts with technology, but we are business minded and value on reliability and delivering what is agreed.

This is the Ecohelix value creation

The Problem

Materials used in packaging, construction, textile, and cosmetics industry, are produced from fossil based raw materials that creates greenhouse gas emissions.

Meaningful Trends

Strong growth trend in replacing aluminum, oil-based chemicals and polymers sourced from food production driven by consumer trends and EU regulations. Tightened emission regulations and higher production demands has created bottlenecks in pulp production that the mills need to solve.

Innovation

Using biotechnology and membrane filtration to create high performing Woodmer biopolymer from pulping side-streams.

User Benefits

Ecohelix Woodmer products can replace currently used oil and food-based polymers in many applications to increase the green profile of the products and to decrease emissions.

Core Competencies

Ecohelix has done research on the technology with strong R&D team for the past 10 years resulting in a unique, patented technology, that is now ready production.

Production Goals

Ecohelix has a target to move from demo to industrial scale (15 000 tn/a) production by 2024 and continue expanding to new mills after that.

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.
