The Government of Nova Scotia has amended a regulation that will no longer require Nova Scotia Power to run its bioenergy plant in Point Tupper full-time.

According to the CBC, the government has removed the must-run designation originally set upon the plant when it first began producing electricity.

The biomass facility is located next to Port Hawkesbury Paper, and will continue to provide steam for the pulp and paper mill, says the CBC article.

The regulatory change comes in the wake of public discussions in which many participants expressed concern over the use of primary forest products used for electricity generation.
