Canfor Pulp is receiving $2 million in funding from the government of British Columbia for a project that will convert forestry byproduct and wood waste to renewable energy.

The company’s Prince George kraft pulp mill will spearhead the project.

Once successfully demonstrated in B.C., the company plans to license the technology for Canadian and international use to help reach climate sustainability goals globally.
