Government and industry officials are trying to work out the details of a $200 million deinking project at Kruger, Trois-Rivires, QC.

At a press conference, minister responsible for the Mauricie region Julie Boulet confirmed the government is indeed working with Kruger on the project and that it is making progress.

According to a story published by Le Nouvelliste, there is a possibility the mill will be eligible to benefit from an energy efficiency program entitled PAMUGE (Programme d’amlioration majeure d’usine Grandes Enterprises), whereby industrial users can save up to $30 million on their energy costs per project.

Although the project is in the works and an official announcement by Kruger has not yet been made, the plant is expected to meet increasing market demand for paper made from recycled fibre.
