The team behind the revolutionary technology
RenFuel converts forest lignin into bio-oil
RenFuel is a Swedish innovation company in bioenergy with dedicated researchers, employees and owners who, with a solid knowledge of the forest industry and green chemistry, are driven by the idea of replacing finite fossil fuels with sustainable bio-gasoline and bio-diesel.
RenFuel is a spin-off from a research group at Uppsala University with cutting-edge technology in pharmaceutical manufacturing and biotechnology with knowledge of green chemistry and biomass from the forest industry. RenFuel has patented a world-class catalytic process that energy-efficiently transforms lignin from by-products in the forest industry into renewable lignin oil – Lignol®.
...and biobased plastics
With our unique, patented technology, we convert lignin into different types of materials that completely or partially replace fossil-based plastics. Our lignin materials are technically equivalent to the fossil equivalent plastics, but reduce the carbon footprint of the products.
