Domtar Corporation has commissioned a kraft lignin plant at its mill in Plymouth, NC, using Metso's Lignoboost technology. This is believed to be the first new lignin capacity developed in North America in the last 25 years.

While Domtar is not a Lignworks partner, this development is nonetheless important for the development of markets for lignin-based materials since the limited commercial availability of lignin is often a worry for potential adopters of lignin-based materials.
