OrganoClick, a green chemical and material technology company that develops performance materials based on cellulosic fibres, is representing Sweden in the environmental and corporate sustainability category of the European Business Awards. The company has already been named national champion for Sweden in this public voting competition.

The European Business Awards, Europe’s largest business competition, is set up to celebrate business excellence and best practice in the European business community. It requires the national champions in each country to make a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The public will watch the videos and vote for their favourite.

“We really want to put Sweden on the European map of eco-friendly companies in the frontline. It is with great hope for the public votes that we head for the champion title. We want to inspire the world to make great business with environmentally friendly solutions,” said Mårten Hellberg, CEO of OrganoClick.

OrganoClick was chosen from 33,000 businesses, by an esteemed panel of judges made up of European business and political leaders, academics and entrepreneurs, to represent Sweden in the category of environmental and corporate sustainability.

OrganoClick was internationally recognised for its research and development of alternative chemical technologies to replace environmentally harmful chemicals currently in use in fibre based materials. In addition, it has successfully taken its products to market with a rapid international sales growth.

OrganoClick produces and markets functional materials based on environmentally friendly fibre chemistry. Examples of products that are marketed by OrganoClick are the water-repellent fabric treatment OrganoTex, the flame and rot protected wooden material OrganoWood (through the subsidiary company OrganoWood AB) and biobased binders for nonwoven materials.

OrganoClick was founded in 2006 as a commercial spinoff company based on academic research examining the modification of biofibers performed at Stockholm University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. (KD)
