We are PaperShell
PaperShell AB was founded in 2021 but the idea behind PaperShell was born in 2018. We have the core belief that the solution to the climate crisis and a sustainable management of resources is found in nature. We’re building paper back into a more resistant version of wood. We’re slowing down the papercycle and paying tribute to the high-tech found in forests by creating components that store bio-carbon instead of wasting it on single-use items or biofuels.
Our goal is to offer sustainable, high tech, long lasting and load bearing B2B components based on ingredients found in wood and plants. We’re taking a pioneering role in the transformation towards a local and circular biobased society. PaperShell aims to replace fossil-based materials with bio-carbon solutions without compromising on nature’s balance or performance.
We’re a diverse and purpose-driven team cross breeding design, science and industrial technology. Inspired by nature’s 3.8 billion years of bio intelligence we’re creating high tech, artificially engineered wood components with the potential to replace bulk materials like press moulded veneer, plastics, fiber composites and even metals. PaperShell is derived from and designed for a circular economy. To maximize our impact, we only want to work with colleagues, suppliers, partners and clients who share this ambition.
PapersShell is growing fast and organic. We work closely with scientists in EU with ongoing and deep collaboration with The research institute of Sweden (RISE). In Tibro, Sweden we have our pilot plant where we do co-development projects and R&D with a maximum capacity of 60 000 components per year. In 2023 we will launch our first highly automated and flexible factory with a maximum capacity of 700 000 components per year. Our board and investors have strong and in many cases famous industrial, entrepreneurial, engineering or design backgrounds. The team is diverse and committed to industrialise, scaling and creating value for our customers helping them reach our mutual sustainability agendas.
