Central to our work is reducing the world’s reliance on virgin and fossil-based resources, achieving new circular solutions, and enabling impact at scale.
The time is now.
Born from Aalto University, we are a spin-off that is boldly charging into the future. We partner with the most forward-thinking scientists, companies, industrial leaders, and innovators to unleash the potential of cellulose, biomaterials, and biotechnologies – driving the green transition forward with passion and purpose.
From our groundbreaking, patented AaltoCellTM technology and Norratex fiber innovation – to BIG, our bio innovation garage – we collaborate to discover and develop sustainable, cellulose-based solutions for a better world.
Our dedication to innovation and sustainability drives us to push boundaries and create a positive impact in the world, one step at a time.
