Domtar’s long-term goal for the Bio-Choice lignin product line is to have multiple mills producing multiple grades, from different wood sources, including modified or upgraded lignin grades.

The Plymouth lignin-removal plant has been operational since March. It currently produces about 30 tons per day of lignin, using the LignoBoost process sold by Metso. Production is expected to be about 70 tons/day by the fourth quarter.

Domtar has completed commercial transactions for lignin with both regional and international customers. The company says it has more than 100 active customers or potential customers engaged.
