  • Default Helvetica Segoe Georgia Times is now live—an entirely new website featuring innovative, productive, and game-changing advantages from their scalable MFC (micro-fibrillated cellulose) Modules.

The site showcases a portfolio of unique formulations, equipment, and know-how to:

  • Convert brown board grades to White Top without spending millions. 
  • Gain fibre flexibility, including high performance from cheaper recycled furnish.
  • Substitute MFC for starch and synthetic additives.
  • Make entirely new grades with modest process changes.

According to CEO Enrico de Landerset, “The new FiberLean is a commercial powerhouse to support customer cost-saving measures and entirely new innovations simultaneously. Our website is all about practical, proven, and creative ways to be innovative and productive with paper and packaging products. Unique formulations for building materials and agriculture are also featured.”

The centrepiece of the FiberLean business offer is MFC modules on-site, using robust grinding technology finesse to deliver high-quality MFC. The result is always economic and sustainability gains for customers. Continues de Landerset, “With over 600 patents, FiberLean MFC, and customers on three continents, our scientists and application specialists help customers with practical, biomaterial sustainability advances. Take a spin on our new website to learn more.

FiberLean Technologies is part of the Werhahn Group and is headquartered in Neuss, Germany.

About FiberLean

Founded in 2016 with R & D origins in 2008, FiberLean Technologies is a pioneer in commercializing MFC (micro-fibrillated cellulose) on an industrial scale. Globally the company provides solutions and technology for customers in paper and packaging, as well as the building materials and food industries.  FiberLean Technologies applies its industrial, reliable, and scalable process to proliferate FiberLean® MFC formulations—made from natural, renewable, abundant managed forests and recycled paper waste.  The centerpiece of the FiberLean business offer is uniquely manufactured MFC modules on-site, delivering high-quality MFC, economic and sustainability gains for customers by our team of experts.  FiberLean Technologies GmbH is a company of the Werhahn Group and is headquartered in Neuss, Germany.

Innovations from FiberLean include the use of MFC technology to convert a brown board machine to White Top by eliminating the capital expenditures typically associated with a rebuild and lost production time. 

FiberLean MFC can assist with natural barrier alternatives, as well as strength gains, lightweighting, and more productive cycles of recycled fiber.  With the addition of MFC, less expensive composites—primarily fiber and minerals—are proven to reduce costs and allow for a more flexible raw material supply.  Substitution for starch and synthetic coating barrier materials is not only possible but proven by FiberLean. 

With over 650 patents for FiberLean MFC and customers on three continents, our scientists and application specialists help paper, board, and other industrial manufacturers make better products and open the way for entirely new ones—while leading biomaterial sustainability advances.
