July 22, 2011, Vancouver – Lignol Energy
Corporation and HA International (HAI) have done successful production trials
of a new foundry resin that uses a renewable chemical formulation containing
Lignol’s High-performance Lignin (HP-L). Production trials of the new foundry
resin were conducted in the production of metal castings for ferrous and
non-ferrous impellors used in a variety of pumping applications. The results
met or exceeded customer requirements for performance and reduced smoke and
odour at pouring. The new resin formulation displaces certain petrochemicals
normally found in resins by using HP-L, a renewable chemical made from biomass.

The two companies are now in the process of
negotiating the terms of a supply agreement to enable HAI to continue shipping
the new resin formulation to its customer. HAI will begin to evaluate other
formulations within the company’s product line to incorporate HP-L.
