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.

Products with 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 2019 UN Special Report on Climate Change and Land shows that land use and forests play a vital role, serving three important purposes: Climate: CO2 uptake and storage Biodiversity: Provide the principal basis for important species Renewable raw material: For sustainable products that can replace fossil-based alternatives
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.
