R&D and Innovation in Borregaard

Strong innovation efforts is one of Borregaard’s strategic priorities. Long-standing research and development have resulted in solutions that respond to important long-term global challenges.

To maintain our position as the world’s most advanced biorefinery, Borregaard is dependent on developing the biorefinery concept by finding new bio-based raw materials, as well as new products with high value and good environmental profile. High focus on continuous improvement leads to better ways of making products through new use of technology, digitalisation, competence development and a more efficient organisation.

Borregaard’s innovation success is a result of world class in-house R&D and close co-operation between sales, manufacturing, customers and external institutes and universities in several countries. 

At our research centre in Sarpsborg, 70 employees from different parts of the world work in the development of environmental technology and new products.
