Resolute wins Innovation Award for new cellulose filaments partnership

We are pleased to announce Resolute, in partnership with FPInnovations and Performance BioFilaments, won a Partnership award at the Annual Gala of the l'Association pour le développement de la recherche et de l'innovation du Québec's (ADRIQ) Innovation Awards.

Nominated alongside ten other organizations in the category, we were recognized for our commercial plant specializing in the production of cellulose filaments.

ADRIQ's annual gala has been celebrating the innovation of businesses and organizations for 30 years, and is considered one of the most prestigious award competitions in Quebec. Recipients are recognized for contributing to the performance and success of innovative companies, or to the development of Quebec's innovation system.

Resolute is building a facility specializing in the production of cellulose filaments at our Kénogami (Quebec) paper mill. A new sustainable material derived from wood fiber, cellulose filaments are manufactured entirely from renewable sources, resulting in a low carbon footprint. The filaments offer a wide variety of uses and can be integrated into commercial as well as consumer products from many industries, including transportation, construction and energy, increasing the resistance and durability of those products.
