Finland – Stora Enso has increased its ownership to 100% in the Sweden-based company Cellutech AB, which specialises in the development of new materials and applications based on cellulose, micro-fibrillated cellulose (MFC) and other wood-based components.

The acquisition of Cellutech is in line with Stora Enso’s strategy of replacing fossil-based materials with renewable ones originating from wood. Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, bio-materials, wooden constructions and paper on global markets. The acquired company works, among others, in the areas of foams for packaging and hydroponics where the markets are continuously growing. Cellulosic foams can, for example, be used in packaging to replace polystyrenes which are the most widely used plastics.
