NORAM Engineering & B.C Research Establish Strong LignoForce™ Presence at the 1st PAPTAC International Lignin Conference

November 7, 2018


Delegates from NORAM and B.C Research were recently in attendance at the 1st PAPTAC international lignin conference. The conference was held between September 18-20 2018 in Edmonton, Alberta. The  purpose of the conference was to discuss recent progress in all aspects of lignin chemistry and utilization in several sessions, including:

  • Lignin analysis and characterization methodology

  • Lignin extraction from pulping liquors or other biomass processing operations

  • Lignin process integration into pulp mill or other biomass processing operations

  • Lignin depolymerization and/or modification

  • Lignin applications and products

Delegates from NORAM Engineering were proud to present their paper titled ““Kraft Lignin Production: a LignoForce™ Perspective” outlining the capabilities of their patented LignoForce™ technology. The LignoForce™ process was jointly developed by NORAM, FPInnovations and BC Research to recover high quality, low odor lignin from black liquor. The process has been scaled up to a 30 TPD commercial plant in Hinton, AB.


Delegates from B.C Research Inc. were proud to present a poster highlighting the capabilities of its LignoForce™ lignin extraction pilot plant. The pilot plant is capable of extracting lignin from various kraft black liquor feedstocks for application testing purposes.
