Resolute has won an Environment + Energy (E+E) Project of the Year Award for our Thunder Bay (Ontario) thermomechanical pulp (TMP) biorefinery, which is focused on developing new ways to efficiently produce and commercialize innovative bioproducts derived from wood.
It will be featured on E+E Awards’ eBook and on Environment + Energy Leader’s Awards Hall of Fame.
Now in their eighth year, the E+E Awards are run by Environment and Energy Leader, an online resource for news, best practices and research. Winners are selected from across a variety of industries based on their success in providing significant sustainability and energy management results.
“With rapid advancements and a near-constant rate of change in the field, sustainability and energy professionals had to prove to our judges that they were really the best of the best this year,” says Sarah Roberts, Environment + Energy Leader publisher. “With a highly respected (and critical) judging panel and a strict set of judging criteria, entrants faced an extremely high bar to qualify for an award.”
Here are some comments from the judges:
“An opportunity for product development and diversification for pulp and paper producers, who have well established wood fiber supply chains, and for forest and timber plantation landowners, to supply this emerging market.”
“Significant investment to increase circular economy within the industry and replace petroleum-based products. Resolute is establishing a leadership position in the trash to treasure process assessment.”
“The usefulness of wood based products is very high when done correctly. It is to my best knowledge that Resolute is doing everything in their power to be responsible with their timber activities.”
Inaugurated in May 2019, our TMP biorefinery is a C$23-million initiative that has the support of the municipal, Ontario and Canadian governments.
