Lignin

Lignin is the binder that holds the fibers of plants together and makes them strong and rigid, among other properties.

Ontario has made significant investments in the development of wood based lignin extraction technology and processes, with a lignin research cluster located in Thunder Bay supported by the CRIBE in partnership with Lakehead University, FPInnovations and our forest product industry partners.


Nextfor is supporting the development of forest bio-product value chains and identifying areas of opportunity to develop the lignin value chain and accelerate market development of this product.
