PRINCE GEORGE, BC — Canfor Corp. has completed a $7 million cogeneration project at its Intercontinental Pulp mill. With the addition of co-generation, Canfor’s Intercontinental Pulp Mill will be able to increase the amount of residual wood used by 25 000 bone dry metric tonnes (BDMT) to 80 000 BDMT and harness the energy produced from the process. By capturing the high pressure steam energy produced by the residual wood burned in the power boiler, reducing its pressure, and converting it to electrical energy 60% of Intercon’s electrical requirement will be met. This will result, said Dick Luomo, in energy costs reductions of $10/tonne of pulp, with a payback of over $3/tonne per year.
