BC Announces Support for FPInnovations’ Cellulose Filaments Research

Canada first in international race to develop game-changing technology and eco-friendly materials of the future

British Columbia's pulp and paper industry is constantly under threat from the digital transformation – BC has the largest production of market pulp in Canada and will be most affected by reduced demand for pulp going into traditional products such as printing and writing papers. Any impact on market pulp capacity in BC will also affect demand and value of wood chips, in turn affecting the financial stability of sawmills and wood products. Product diversification is essential to maintain pulp market share, generate additional revenue and maximize total value of fibre from BC's forests.
