ALL THINGS LIGNIN...

Welcome to Lignin Enterprises



About Us

       Lignin Enterprises, LLC (LE) is a privately-held specialty chemical company founded to deliver engineered solutions to facilitate increasing production of the pulp and paper industry to deliver "green" (although lignin is "brown"), cost-effective end-use applications based on lignin. LE creates value through its Sequential Liquid-Lignin Recovery and Purification (SLRP™) process, lignin application development, technology collaboration with universities, and marketing all lignin, regardless of how the lignin is made. Starting in 2009, LE developed a world-class technology to extract lignin, from pulp mills while making the pulp mill more efficient. Over the past decade, the Lignin Enterprises team has been creating demand for lignin through its new-product development based on lignin.

Mission

       Lignin Enterprises' objective is to commercialize new lignin-based environmentally-friendly lignin recovery and purification processes that enhance global sustainability for leading businesses. Utilizing our team of experienced technology innovators, we form partnerships with members of the innovation pathway from the idea-generator at the university to the end-user at the manufacturing facility. These partnerships allow Lignin Enterprises to rapidly develop and commercialize customer-specific applications.
