This is a resource-intensive work with high risks. The project funding will cover the building of a pilot plant to develop necessary production techniques to realize full-scale production of the new fibreboards. The project aim is to realize full-scale production within a short time frame. The research and development to produce biocomposites will mainly take place at a demonstration plant being built at Norske Skog Saugbrugs. This plant has a capacity of about 1 ton per day.

Microfibrillated cellulose has received increased attention in forestry industrial research in recent years. The material has special characteristics and can be applied in a number of areas. Preliminary test results show the boards to have a solid structure, light weight and excellent insulation capabilities. The company has an annual production capacity of 2. It enables companies to find and assess innovations with a potential impact on their industry, as a complement to the project they may are already involved in order to choose those with a potential impact for the industry, as a complement to the projects in which they are already involved.

The parties will work to develop a new type of biocomposite that may include furniture, packaging and car interiors. Norske Skog and Borregaard will develop sustainable solutions related to plastic raw materials, fiber blending, technology development and testing of biocomposites. Only a handful larger production facilities exists. Another goal is to find good solutions to recycle substantially more plastic than today. These two companies have both the ability and the will to implement this demanding technology development.

The boards will be tested and developed in collaboration with potential customers in the construction industry. We see the collaboration between Borregaard and Norske Skog Saugbrugs as very positive, and hope the projects lead to the development of unique expertise in wood fiber, cellulose and biocomposites. In a context in which waste management and environmental legislations are becoming more and more important, the recycling and disposal of composites is an issue that is being increasingly addressed. Startup Booster is the leading startup competition in the world of Composites. . Using recycled plastic and developing recyclable biocomposites can be an important step in the direction of a circular economy.

The biocomposite consists of fiber from spruce, produced at the Saugbrugs and Borregaard plants, which together with thermoplastics are mixed and delivered as pellets to the plastics industry to produce various products such as furniture, car interiors, pipes, construction articles, consumables, packaging and more. With headquarters in Oslo, Norway, Norske Skog is one of the world's largest producer of publication paper. In this way, the wood processing industry can help solve sustainability challenges in the plastics industry. In the range of parts and finished products showcased and presented on these planets, visitors can explore the solutions proposed by the composite industry for their specific issues. At the same time, it is important to develop products that will be in great demand. .
