Lignin Challenge 1.0

Back to Program

Alberta Bio Future (ABF) and its sub-programs focus primarily on projects that add value to biomass in agriculture and forestry, and create new and improved bioindustrial products and bioindustrial technologies.

The ABF Lignin Challenge 1.0 sub-program supports early-stage work to demonstrate technical feasibility of lignin in high-value applications with potential for commercialization. We are offering this funding in partnership with West Fraser, an integrated forest products company.

This sub-program is closed to new applications. Researchers at Canadian institutions, companies or other organizations were eligible to apply. Sixteen projects were approved.
