FPP Process

The flexible physical protection (FPP) process is based on a patent-pending technology and facilitates the production of lignin with tailored chemical and physical properties.

The raw materials primarily include currently underutilized waste material from the forest industry such as sawdust, bark, and agricultural waste, but can also include traditional wood chips.

The process is integrated, producing hemicelluloses and fibers as secondary products.

The core innovation in the technology adopts the principle of physical protection, tweaked with reaction parameters that can be used to selectively tailor molecular properties for customized applications.
