Resolute is partnering once again with FPInnovations, a world-leading R&D organization, to develop new, eco-friendly products that have the potential to create renewable, biodegradable and cost-effective alternatives to petroleum-based products for use in the construction, automotive, mining, oil and other sectors.
We will contribute C$3.5 million to this innovative project, which is supported by the Province of Ontario, and host the pilot plant at our Thunder Bay pulp and paper facility. The three-year research program will help demonstrate the feasibility of the process and optimize potential market applications for bio-chemicals derived from wood – critical to the commercial success of the project. The new pilot project will create jobs and help grow the Northern Ontario economy.
