The plant is located on the same site as the company’s
sawmilling operation in the northwest corner of Thunder Bay. That location is
also home to the FPInnovations Lignin Pilot Plant, the first of its kind in
North America.

 

Resolute is also looking at opportunities for development of
secondary markets for pellets in a partnership with the Fort William First
