Images of the accumulation of plastic waste adversely impacting the environment, wildlife and humans have gone viral across media. The message is clear: change is necessary. This is not new information to research organizations like FPInnovations that began to contribute to the building of a new bioeconomy years ago. In fact, FPInnovations, in conjunction with its member companies, was instrumental in moving the forest industry to the forefront of bioproducts research, which has had the added bonus of finding new avenues for pulp, helping to restore and sustain the industry.
