Resolute has been ranked as one of Canada’s Top 100 Corporate R&D spenders, marking the seventh year in a row we’ve made this prestigious list of Canada’s innovation leaders.
The Top 100 ranking was announced on November 13 by Research Infosource Inc., which annually profiles organizations committed to enhancing Canada’s global competitiveness in the knowledge economy.
What Resolute innovations are contributing to this new economy? We are hosting and investing C$3.5 million in a bio-refinery pilot plant at our Thunder Bay (Ontario) facility to provide new pathways to the large-scale production of green bio-chemicals derived from wood. Along with our project partner, FPInnovations, we are working to develop eco-friendly and cost-effective alternatives to petroleum-based products for use in the construction, automotive, mining, oil and other sectors. Some of Resolute’s other noteworthy innovations include: a joint-venture project to deploy enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology at our Saint-Félicien (Quebec) pulp mill in partnership with CO2 Solutions; our wood pellet plant in Thunder Bay, which generates carbon-neutral renewable energy; and our joint venture with Mercer International to develop commercial applications for cellulose filaments, a new source of biomaterial made of wood fiber.
