Bjørn Thorsen distributes Biocomposites by WoodComposites Sweden AB in whole Europe

Bjørn Thorsen A/S has been granted European distribution rights for the range of Biocomposites, also known as Woodcompounds or Durasense® products from WoodComposites Sweden AB. We will take the opportunity to showcase these materials at upcoming France Innovation Plasturgie (FIP) in Lyon, FR and Plastics Live in Coventry, UK, in June 2024!

Durasense®/Biocomposites is the portfolio of WoodComposites Sweden AB, a company created following Sweden Timber’s acquisition of Stora Enso’s biocomposites business unit at Hyltebruk plant, as announced in September 2023 (full announcement available here). This is a range of bio-based alternatives to conventional polymers, which brings the good moldability of polyolefins together with the strength and sustainability of lignocellulosic fibers, resulting in a global reduced CO2 footprint of up to 80%. These biocomposites are renowned for their exceptional blend of sustainability, strength, and versatility, making it a great addition to Bjørn Thorsen’s circular solutions offering.

Some of the key characteristics of Biocomposites are:

  • Sustainability
    Biocomposites are made from a blend of natural lignocellulosic feedstock and polymer resins, reducing the reliance on fossil-based materials and promoting a sustainable approach to plastics.
  • Natural appearance
    The lignocellulosic components in Biocomposites provide a natural appearance, making them an attractive choice for applications where aesthetics and eco-friendliness are important, like consumer goods, food packaging, cosmetics, automotive.
  • High strength
    Biocomposites offer excellent mechanical properties, combining the strength of lignocellulosic materials with the durability of plastics, making them suitable for a wide range of applications where toughness is crucial, for instance in building and construction or the automotive industry.
  • Reduced carbon footprint
    Using lignocellulosic fibers as a renewable resource in the manufacturing process helps reduce the overall carbon footprint of products made with Biocomposites from WoodComposites Sweden AB.
