Bio Manufacturing

Lignin is a fully renewable, organic compound made up of a range of complex carbon molecules which naturally occur in wood.

Our Maryvale operation produces more than 600,000 tonnes of lignin based biofuel every year from the wood we process, making Australian Paper Victoria’s largest generator of baseload renewable energy.

Although we currently use this lignin based biofuel to generate energy, it can be further processed as an input to new generation bio-products such as:

Australian Paper is committed to investigating this potential future growth opportunity as part of our mission of sustainable growth for the next generation.
