Fiberwood, established in 2019, is committed to advancing sustainable and ecological construction and packaging. The company has developed a technology and production process to produce circular, fossil-free insulation and packaging materials from forestry side streams and other natural fibres.

"Our products offer eco-friendly, recyclable and resource-efficient alternatives to traditional mineral wool-based insulation and cellular plastic-based packaging cushioning. Additionally, we enable the use of sustainable products in entirely new applications," says Fiberwood's CEO, Tage Johansson.

Fiberwood is preparing to enter a commercial phase with the aim of international growth

In the spring of 2023, Fiberwood received 3 million euros in funding for development work. With the additional funding now secured, the company will begin constructing a test line to finalise its product concept, ensure industrial scalability and accelerate R&D activities. The test line will enable the manufacture of fully market-compatible products for customers' commercial projects.

Fiberwood has several product development projects underway with strategic customers and is close to finalising its initial series of commercial agreements.

"The funding round strengthens Fiberwood's position as a pioneer in materials technology. We're setting the foundation for a future production line, minimising risks from the outset. Our investment in process technology distinguishes us, enhances our competitive position, and contributes to the development of the Finnish forestry and materials technology know-how," says Johansson.

Fossil-Free Insulation and Packaging - The Clear Choice for a Greener and Cleaner Planet

Takeda Announces Phase 3 Topline Results for Soticlestat (TAK-935) in Patients with Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome17.6.2024 12:45:00 CEST | Press release

Takeda (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced topline data from its SKYLINE and SKYWAY studies. SKYLINE (TAK-935-3001) was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind Phase 3 study that evaluated soticlestat (TAK-935) plus standard of care versus placebo plus standard of care in patients with refractory Dravet syndrome (DS).1 Soticlestat narrowly missed the primary endpoint of reduction from baseline in convulsive seizure frequency as compared to placebo (p-value = 0.06). Among the six key secondary endpoints, soticlestat showed clinically meaningful and nominally significant results in the responder rate, measures of caregiver and clinician global impression of improvement, and seizure intensity and duration scales over the 16-week treatment period (all p-values ≤ 0.008). SKYWAY (TAK-935-3002) was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind Phase 3 study that evaluated soticlestat plus standard of care versus placebo plus standard of care in patients with refractory Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS)
