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.
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.
