Open test facility

Development of ideas, products, and business

LignoCity is an open test facility for development of ideas and products. Also called a test bed. It is a place for developing products and to try out new things such as a new material, a new product, a new service or process.

By using an open test facility, companies reduce the risks that might come with developing new products. Instead of going straight to a commercial launch, the new product can be tested and developed under real conditions.

Close to the forest industry

LignoCity is located south of Kristinehamn in Sweden and is next door to the paper and pulp mill Nordic Paper, which supplies the test environment with black liquor from its production. LignoCity has a perfect location with roughly the same distance to Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo. The forest industry in the region, Värmland, and the world-leading business cluster Paper Province have a strong global presence and many branches around the world. Here you are close to the forest, the raw material and the cutting-edge expertise.

We offer industrial connections and expertise

LignoCity is staffed by a competent team who can help with the development of lignin products. The open test facility offers technical equipment and an entire industrial floor. In addition, LignoCity collaborates with several companies in areas such as research, innovation and business development that can assist with expertise and technical resources. Through the test bed and the contacts connected to it, there is a world-unique opportunity for the development of environmentally friendly lignin products.
