On January 22, 2020, Resolute was recognized for our efforts to renew and transform the forest products industry. The 2020 BIG Innovation Awards named Resolute a global innovator for commissioning a bio-refinery plant at our Thunder Bay (Ontario) pulp and paper mill. The plant is developing new ways to efficiently produce and commercialize innovative bio-products derived from wood. Resolute joined forces with FPInnovations on this initiative in 2018 as a step towards opening up new markets for the forest products sector within the biochemical products supply chain.
The Innovation Awards are presented annually to honor organizations, products and people bringing new ideas to life. BIG was founded with a mission of recognizing true talent and superior performance in the business world.
“Innovation has become a major theme for organizations across virtually all industries and this year’s winners are a testament to the creativity, passion and perseverance of individuals worldwide,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Resolute as they are leading by example and making real progress on improving the daily lives of so many.”
Resolute’s bio-refinery was officially inaugurated on May 27, 2019 with the support of the municipal, Ontario and Canadian governments.
