Besides pulp, we also obtain bioenergy and other biomass based byproducts from wood. Our goal is to gain as much value from the biomass wood as possible. We use our raw material as sustainably as possible - no resource should be wasted. We ask ourselves: How can we use the wood to produce as many sustainable products as possible before we generate bioenergy by combustion in the last step?
Mercer International is still looking for new product ideas in this area and for innovative technological approaches. Which wood components can be used in a more individually targeted and value-added manner? In which materials can wood components substitute fossil or synthetic materials? Many interesting alternatives are already being explored. The pulp factory provides the ideal precondition for biorefinery.
