Canada's first commercial lignin plant is under construction at the West Fraser Timber kraft pulp mill in Hinton, AB.

The plant will use the Lignoforce Technology developed by FPInnovations, one of Lignoworks industrial partners. More information about the project is available from West Fraser's press release announcing the project.

With the kraft lignin precipitation plant inaugurated just over a year ago at Domtar's Plymouth, NC mill and another recently announced lignin project by Stora-Enso for their mill in Sunila, FI, the old adage that "you can make anything from lignin except money" is finally being laid to rest!
