Responsible innovation serving mankind and environment

Responsible innovation serving mankind and environment

Greetings from CEO

KaiCell Fibers is based on near fiber approach, meaning that raw materials are sourced in the proximity of the mill. On the other hand our goal is to produce bio-based product for growing global damand of sustainable products.

We act responsibly in wood procurement. Most of the wood we use will be available in an average distance of one hundred kilometres, therefore, the wood supply distance in Kainuu is significantly reduced, as well as the carbon dioxide emmisiions generated from the transportation.

On the product side, there is growing demand for sustainable chemical pulp, which is used for various applications. On the other hand we are also engaged to develop processed products out of chemical pulp. Major interest for us is textile finer material, which is developed by our partners.

We use raw material holistically and innovatively, which is also part of responsible behaviour. BioFutureFactory™ is a technology village, where enterprises, institutes and other entities can transfer side streams into bioproducts. Thus we make it possible for businesses to develop more highly processed bioproducts out of, for example, tree bark and sugary substances. Therefore, for valuable raw material as wood and its side streams, new opportunities for the future will be sought. This is how we operate according to the principles of modern networking and circular economy.

Responsible supports business

Responsible operation is not only an absolute value as such, but also means that we are also financially responsible. When operating with local fiber we can have sound basis for operations.

When we succeed in the market, we create economic prosperity not only to the shareholders but also to many other stakeholders. People get the job, forest owners finds buyer for the wood and the local entrepreneurs get business. This all brings tax revenues to the municipality. The impacts also extend far beyond Kainuu.

Many forest owners live around Finland and the networks of many partner companies extend across Finland. That is why we are confident that we are producing responsible innovations for the benefit of people and the environment.

One of the key features of our new operating model is the network approach. Paltamo's biorefinery is the core of business, but people create innovations. That is why we would like to include the whole group including investors, innovators, forest owners and many other key partners whoes contribution to the new construction will be highly valued and appreciated
