About Us

Nature as a sustainable provider for all of humanity: circular economy. Because of its qualities cellulose has a mayor role to play in this endeavor.  As a company we contribute to this by utilizing cellulose as one of the main sources for production of goods, materials and chemicals. Our vision: 

c e l l u l o s e ,   c i r c u l a r   e c o n om y   e s s e n t i a l

In the 20th century the pulp- and paper industries developed a great foundation for cellulose utilization.

We now take cellulose to a 21st century level. Together with our partners we unlock the full potential of cellulose and make it the beating heart of circular economy.

Our Approach

Our world is in need of new, sustainable ways of production: circular economy. Therefore consumer goods, build environment and chemical industries need rethinking in terms of sourcing and sustainable production. 

For KNN Cellulose developing these sustainable value chains means searching for balance in both economical and environmental value

Lasting partnership is a crucial element in the development of sustainable value chains. We establish(ed) several partnerships in various value chains, from suppliers to customer.
