Nurturing a greener industry

Saving resources and costs in the pulp and paper industry, while improving product quality, performance, and appearance.


It takes huge amounts of water, energy and chemicals to produce pulp and paper.That puts an economic strain on manufacturers and is harmful for the environment. Novozymes’ solutions save resources and production costs while improving the quality, performance, and appearance of pulp and paper products.

Enzymes augment many processes at pulp and paper mills, which means savings on electricity, water, and chemicals. That leads to cost savings on resources and inputs, as well as reduced environmental impacts for the mills. 

Stay one step ahead

Responsible water consumption is an issue Novozymes approaches with the same vigor as alternative energy or global warming issues. Clean water is an irreplaceable natural resource, and new legislation is emerging within most industries to regulate water use. Our solutions help customers make these changes in advance and stay ahead of the market.

Increasing demand for quality recycled products

Environmentally-conscious consumers are continuously demanding more recycled products, and the demand will only increase as recycled products improve in quality. Compared to conventional production of recycled products, the use of enzymes is more eco-friendly and more profitable.

Novozymes’ enzymes for pulp and paper production have significantly improved the quality of recycled paper and board products that are produced from recovered fiber. Our solutions are helping customers get a share of this growing market as well as achieve a green and sustainable production.
