NORSUS is updating Borregaard’s environmental declarations

NORSUS has started the process of updating the environmental product declarations (EPDs) for six of Borregaard’s products from its biorefinery in Sarpsborg. During this work, the life cycle model of the biorefinery and the upstream value chain will be restructured and modelled in more detail, and the report will contain historical development of the results. The products under scrutiny are speciality cellulose, lignin-based biopolymers, bioethanol, biovanillin and hydrochloric acid. NORSUS will also develop EPDs for lignin-based biopolymers at Borregaard’s plant in Florida, and here a new life cycle model will be made from scratch.
