Borregaard has produced bioethanol for more than fifty years as a by-product of our cellulose production. Made from Norway Spruce, our ethanol has a consistent impurity profile. Emissions are approximately a tenth that of synthetic ethanol, making it a highly sustainable alternative.
Sustainability in Borregaard
Documented low footprints
Our products have documented low climate footprints and provide better environmental performance than the alternatives in almost all environmental categories.
Sustainably managed forests – an everlasting resource
The world needs renewable solutions to reach a sustainable society. Black carbon needs to be replaced with "green" carbon. Resources such as fossil fuels (oil, coal and gas) need to be replaced by renewable resources such as wind, water, sun and plants.
Strong innovation efforts
Strong innovation efforts are one of Borregaard’s strategic priorities. Long-standing research and development have resulted in solutions that respond to important long-term global challenges.
