Creating a narrative website that explains the science behind Fibenol's service
Fibenol – a subsidiary of Graanul Invest – uses cutting-edge processes to develop a new generation of sugars, high purity hydrolysis lignin, and unique microcrystalline cellulose from hardwood. What this means is that during the processing of wood there are a lot of leftovers. These scraps and pieces are of usually of little value, but Fibenol has developed a process where these leftovers can be used to subtract high quality sugars, lignin and cellulose. These products can, in their turn, be used by manufacturers in all sorts of different ways.
Presenting a lot of information in a clean and pleasing way
Since the subject matter is quite complex, it was important to keep the design clean and hassle-free. There was an added challenge though: due to the lack of visual material (the plant was being built during the design phase) we had to get creative with how we would show things like the materials, technology and the products themselves.
On top of this we wanted to add motion to the website to compensate for the long texts. Nothing that would distract, but rather add a bit of emotion.
