ABERCROMBIE, N.S. – Northern Pulp Nova Scotia will receive $28.1 million from the federal Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program for three projects that will help the mill reduce odour emissions, increase renewable energy production and improve environmental performance.

The federal investment, together with Northern Pulp’s capital program, enables the company to move forward these projects.

One project will reduce odour emissions from the Abercrombie Point mill by at least 70%. Northern Pulp is doing detailed engineering on the odour emissions project; construction will begin this summer and the completion is scheduled for the end of 2011.

Northern Pulp is also upgrading the mill’s boiler to make it cleaner and more efficient, which helps improve the mill’s operational efficiencies and environmental performance. Project completion is scheduled for the end of 2011.

The mill is also increasing production of renewable energy from black liquor solids. Both of these projects will be operational after the mill’s fall shutdown at the end of 2011.
