Who is Södra ?

 

Södra is made up of 3,000 employees who consider conversion of the forest products delivered by the 53,000 owners into renewable, climate-smart products to be the main mission. In Södra’s operations, the hole tree is used – even the branches and treetops.

The forest products are processed into paper and dissolving pulp, sawn timber, cross-laminated timber and other processed products for housing construction, energy products and raw material for liquid biofuels. Södra is an export company with a strong financial position. Both pulp production and the sawmill operations are among the largest in Europe, and the products are mainly sold in international markets.

What are they looking for?

 

Södra is actively searching for highly innovative scalable solutions from scale-ups and start-ups within their strategic areas: forest, sawn timber, paper, textiles, chemicals and energy. Södra is a high volume and bulk company and mainly interested in solutions that are commercially verified and proven (TRL/CRL 6-9).

 

Of particular interest are:

• Commercialization of side streams and by-products from the production such as bark, sawdust, sludge, ash and to refine these into higher value products with a better sustainability performance than today’s alternatives. Examples could be biochar, materials, chemicals and other fully refined or semi-refined raw materials.

 

• Solutions that can benefit from industrial symbiosis or integration with Södras existing industrial site infrastructure, by means energy flows and/or logistics. Eg the use of residual warm water (approx. 60°C).

 

• New innovative business models within the areas above.
