LignoCity- flexible production of tailor-made lignin

LignoCity is today the only plant in the world with flexible production of tailor-made lignin grades in large enough quantities for upscaling. Lignin has the potential to be used in a wide range of final applications, from biofuel and bioplastics to adhesives, paint and carbon fiber.

LignoCity is a test bed available to all companies looking to evaluate and verify new concepts for refining lignin. Startsida - Lignocity The heart of LignoCity is RISE LignoDemo - a demonstation plant for separation of lignin, in conjuction with Nordic Paper factory. The production capacity can reach up to 6-8 kilotons of lignin/year and the establishment consists partly but not limited to:   

  • Equipment for precipitating lignin from black liquor
  • Band-press filter and filterpress for cleaning and dewatering
  • Pump-loop with a powderdistributor and a tank with heating and stirring abilities

Here at LignoCity companies can develop, and scale up, technology for seperating and refining lignin with the use of newly developed and eco-friendly chemicals, fuels and materials. 

The test bed involves industrial and social participants, amongst them local participants such as Nordic Paper, RenFuel AB, Paper Province, Karlstad University and Kristinehamn County.
