The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Roles in the value chain

Main roles of the players along the value chain:


Develops lignin quality, pre-processing of lignin, feeding extruders, melting properties, extrusion, reeling/unreeling, stabilisation and carbonisation. Innventia can also produce tailor-made lignin at its demonstration facility, LignoBoost Demo, which can be used as raw material in the carbon fibre demo facility.


Develops process properties for the manufacturing of reinforcement and composite components, and physical properties for various applications based on carbonised lignin-based carbon fibre on different scales for manufacturing of composites, components and application testing.

One important and thus far untapped area for development is the surface treatment of carbon fibre to create the right interaction with resins and other polymers in the finished composite. This research is currently being carried out in cooperation between Innventia and Swerea SICOMP.

Industrial stakeholders

The involvement of industrial stakeholders is crucial in order to achieve a demonstration value chain on site. These stakeholders have different roles along the value chain which include producing the raw material lignin, defining which product properties are required in different applications, testing components, developing production technologies, developing business models, and, in the final stage, commercialisation.
