As a part of the bioeconomy, Stora Enso believes that everything that is made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow. This is one of the reasons The Biorenewable Deployment Consortium (BDC) honoured Stora Enso with the Forest Product Innovation Award.
BDC is working to bring together like-minded companies to share ideas to deploy bio-processes that can be economic in the long run without government subsidy.
The award was presented on October 22nd, during a virtual webcast presentation given by Stora Enso to BDC members, guests and media.
“Stora Enso is an excellent example of a company that has developed a culture in the deployment of biorenewable processes that will add value to operations and make the company more viable for the future.” said BDC President and Co-Founder Masood Akhtar.
Stora Enso is proud to accept this award on behalf of the members of the worldwide team who are dedicated to innovation in the area of biorenewable products and processes.

Some people and organizations argue that old forests are more sustainable than new ones, no matter how responsible the forestry and harvesting. That any company who uses wood for its products is causing a major negative impact on our climate – when it comes to reduction of carbon emissions and the biodiversity of our forests. But it’s not a black and white question. As a matter of fact, there are several upsides to harvesting and managing forests to get a hold of the remarkable, renewable raw material called wood.
Alongside Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla mill, another sustainable initiative is in the making. All over the world, the demand for sustainable textile fibers is growing and the new facility is a demonstration plant for TreeToTextile, owned by Stora Enso, H&M Group, Inter IKEA Group, and LSCS Invest.
Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla Mill is now producing liquefied biogas (LBG) at full speed. We created an icon that communicates the benefits in a clear way; how we manage to, not only make use of residue from the process of turning wood into paper, but also make way for a fossil free future.
