The forum on lignin brought together experts from academia, industry, and government to share knowledge and identify technical and economic opportunities and challenges for the pulp and paper industry with regard to the utilization of the lignin byproduct from the Kraft process. The forum concluded with several action items that participants could work on together to accelerate the advancing forest bioeconomy in Michigan.
