Nextfor has announced that it is launching an Expression of Interest for a $1 million joint investment commercialization challenge (50% industry matching contribution required) to solicit project ideas that will support building robust value chain consortiums and establish or increase the commercial readiness of lignin-based products.

Throughout 2018 and 2019, Nextfor launched a series of High-Performance Lignin Collaboration Forums to gather value chain feedback on the state of lignin product development in Canada and Ontario. Industry leaders worked together in these sessions to identify three opportunity maps for commercialization:

* Polymers & Fine Chemicals

* Resins & Adhesives

* Thermoplastics & Composites

and eligibility.
