Our biochemicals and other bioproducts


Metsä Fibre produces and sells a range of biochemicals and other wood-based bioproducts, as well as pulp and sawn timber. In addition to being one of the world’s leading producers of pine-based biochemicals, we are also a leader in efficiency in our industry, and we turn all our side streams from the pulp production process into valuable bioproducts.

We are continuously working to improve and expand our bioproduct portfolio, and the side-streams of our pulp production processes also open up a wide variety of opportunities for the extraction, refinement and development of new and exciting bioproducts. For example, we are already developing products such as biogas, biocomposites and fibre-based fabrics together with partner companies.

The biochemicals extracted from high-quality Nordic pine, spruce and birch are important natural raw materials that replace fossil-based products in many industrial processes. They can be used in everything from industrial grade performance chemicals to detergents, and even foodstuff.


WE AIM TO BE SUSTAINABLE IN ALL OUR OPERATIONS

All Metsä Fibre’s biochemicals and bioproducts are made using Nordic wood from sustainably managed forests and our new pulp mills are the most efficient in the world. In fact, our pulp mills produce significantly more energy than they consume, which will help us to reach our 2030 target to be completely fossil fuel free.
